Car crime is on the rise. Or so claim M&S Car Insurance, who reckon Brits are apt to sloppiness on the car security front.

Forty percent of drivers interrogated by M&S confessed to leaving vehicle security systems de-activated whilst parked on a serial basis. A similar percentage admitted having left their cars utterly unlocked at some point.

If they don’t want to invalidate their claims, warns Not Just Andrew Ferguson, car people need to pull their socks up. “During the summer months,” he warned gravely, “many drivers unwind windows and leave roofs open.”

The eight per cent of drivers who told the survey they’d had stuff nicked out of the cars would doubtless corroborate Fergie’s earnest imprecation that “It’s important to make sure the vehicle is secure when unattended.”

What our clients say about us

After the problems I had with my previous insurer when I was knocked off my bike, it was very refreshing to talk to someone who didn't automatically assume that I was at fault simply because I ride a motorbike. I received a call back very quickly from someone who knew what I was talking about and dealt with my call in a friendly yet very professional manner. Thank you.
