You’d be hard pressed to drive more than a mile in Florida and not see a suped up truck either on the road or in a driveway. But the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) is warning Florida truck owners that their vehicles are more at risk of being stolen than Florida car owners. In particular, the 2006 Ford F150, the 2005 Chevy Silverado, and the 2005 Dodge Dakota. If you noticed something similar about those vehicles, you should. They each more than ten years old, built before the advent of modern security locks.
Anti-theft systems in newer model cars and trucks are excellent, but they don’t work if you don’t use them. Far too many thefts occur because the vehicle is left unlocked and the key or fob is inside. Taking the time to lock it up every time you leave it can save a whole lot of headache and expense in the long run.
