We love our cars; they help give us a sense of freedom and independence, but they can bring on many unpredictable issues causing what we came to describe as “car-ownership anxiety.”
In this series, we break down 3 key factors that contribute to car-ownership stress and how Vehicle Mind works to eliminate them for drivers like you. Here is the second.
Stress factor 2: Unpredictable events such as theft and towing
Car-owner anxiety isn’t just limited to diagnostics. You park your vehicle in a parking lot assuming it would be safe, only to return and realize someone has rammed into the side of your car or worse, you realize it has been stolen or towed the morning you’re set to head out to work.
- The latest data shows that in Canada we saw a rise in car theft from 2016-2018.
- Car theft has risen 63% in cities like NY and 17% in LA since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
- In Montreal alone, approximately 25,000 cars are towed every winter.
Get notified the moment your car’s safety status is compromised
Whether at the office, having dinner or enjoying a quiet evening at home, you can rely on real-time GPS location services to know where your car is around the clock. Vehicle Mind also:
- Notifies you whenever any abnormal activity (such as towing) is detected while the car’s engine is off.
- Lets you set up virtual perimeters to receive alerts when your car enters or exits a ”geofenced” zone set up by you.
