Car Stereo Theft a Thing of the Past?, Seems So

stolencarstereoAccording to a report on NPR, the crime of car stereo theft, a crime that plagued car owners throughout the 1990s, seems to fast be becoming a thing of the past. According to the FBI’s latest crime report, car stereo thefts have fallen by more than half over the past 15 years, from more than a million in 1994 to just over 400,000, even as car theft rates have remained high.

Here in D.C., thieves will take just about anything — umbrellas, sunglasses, even motor oil — but they leave the radio. The primary reason, it turns out, is that factory installed stereos have gotten better, and each one fits the make and model that it was in when it rolled off the assembly line, and no other. Because of this, its nearly impossible to sell a car stereo to anyone that doesn’t own the same vehicle that the unit was removed from.

I find this turn of events interesting.
