Ontario auto theft statistics | Toronto & GTA | News | Toronto Sun

The Lock it or Lose It campaign is urging people so lock their cars even if they’re dashing into the store.

Some statistics provided by the campaign:

•Auto theft costs Canadians more than $1 billion every year, which includes emergency response, court, policing, legal, and out-of-pocket costs, such as the deductible

•In 2009, 108,172 vehicles were stolen in Canada; of those, 27,175 were stolen in Ontario. This is a 13% reduction in Ontario compared to the previous year

•Auto theft is not a victimless crime — or just a property crime. Every year innocent people die or are seriously injured as a direct result of auto theft

•On average, auto theft costs every policyholder an additional $35 on his or her insurance premium

•Auto theft can mean a 10-year prison sentence, and a mandatory minimum sentence of six months in jail upon a third conviction
