The Weekly Roundup

A new survey has revealed that half of young female drivers use their car as a ‘second wardrobe’, with the majority of these claiming to keep extra clothing, accessories and make-up in their vehicle ‘in case of emergency’. The study also looked at the value of the fashion and beauty items kept in respondents’ vehicles, with 77 per cent saying that they thought the items they carried were valuable. The average value of these items was £205.

In other news, the threat of thieves using Twitter and other social media websites to spot car owners who are out for the night or on holiday has been highlighted by Tracker, a company that specialises in stolen vehicle recovery. Thieves often target a house just to get car keys and then drive away with the car unhindered. This avoids the thieves having to bypass sophisticated security devices on modern cars as they have the correct key to unlock it.
