From the Paper:

"Few issues and problems remain constant in life, at least over the long-term. Automobile theft is one such issue and problem. What makes automobile theft so particularly troubling is that its costs extend far beyond the victim, costing insurance companies money to replace stolen vehicles, costing taxpayers money to pay for investigators and police officers, etc. Likewise, automobile theft is one of a select handful of crimes that also imposes (or has the potential to) an emotional harm on the victim, often leaving him/her feeling helpless and violated. While numerous anti-theft devices (The Club, Lo-Jack, standard automobile alarms, etc.) have been touted over the years, the fact remains that automobiles are still stolen."
