Anti-theft devises can deter thieves in three ways.
Vehicle Alarms: A car alarm can be a deterrent to some thieves; however, professional car thieves can often work quickly enough to override the alarm. The type of alarm that disables the car is the most effective. Also, an LED light displayed in a visible place on the dashboard will help deter amateurs.
Steering Wheel Locks: These types of devices are a good deterrent to the inexperienced car thief. When properly affixed, the device limits steering wheel movement, making the vehicle nearly impossible to operate.
Glass Etching: Etch the vehicle identification number (VIN) on all windows of the vehicle. This will deter professionals because it is too expensive and time consuming to replace all the glass on the vehicle.
