Here are the pictures of brand new Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, where all the four alloy wheels of both the cars were missing.
Our country is going through huge unemployment and financial crisis and a lot of people are now experiencing an increase in case of theft and snatching in many parts of the country. There has been a rise in the cases of car theft as many small thieves have become more active to enhance their financial condition during these hard times. Here are the images of brand new Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, where all the four alloy wheels of each vehicle have been found missing. Both the cars are from Delhi and were parked together in the night. The owners got to know about this when they woke up the next day. Both the SUVs were found balanced on the bricks. Also, these cars seem to be the top-spec variant models and come fitted with smart-looking 17-inch alloy wheels.
The Hyundai Creta belongs to Raj Kumar Gupta, while the owner of the Seltos is Pankaj Garg. This clearly shows the type of risks a person can face if he parks his can on an unsafe location. But, the big problem is that a lot of car owners have no option, but to park the car on the road because parking is a big problem in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and so on. Nevertheless, there are a few other ways by which a person can reduce the risk of theft of wheels. A person can install an alarm with a sensor. Most of the vehicles these days come fitted with a factory-installed alarm and gets activated as soon as someone tries to get inside the vehicle.
Moreover, there are special sensors, which can be equipped on your car's rims and will alert you if someone tries to steal them. Another way the reduce the chance of theft is to park the car in a secured and well-lit area. One can also turn the front wheels to a 45-degree angle, which will make their removal a bit difficult for the thieves. Furthermore, you can also use wheel locks that are used by traffic police to confiscate the illegally parked vehicle.
