A study was made of the following questions: (1) which models and types of car are stolen most frequently (2) which factors make car theft more likely and (3) which specific techniques are used for the theft of cars. In the Netherlands the opel rekord, the opel kadett and the fiat 850 and 124 are stolen most often. Recommendations are given for the prevention of car theft. It is proposed that: leaving an unattended car should be treated as a crime, steering locks should be installed, more information should be given to the public, police surveillance should be improved. /TRRL/
