New York Mayor Combats Car Theft With Free Apple AirTags
In New York, car theft is on the rise. Thieves are targeting specific vehicles, because they’re easiest and quickest cars to steal! Kia’s, Hyundai’s, and Honda models are the targeted cars.
How are they planning to slow car theft down? Mayor, Eric Adams says they’re city is going to pass out five-hundred Apple AirTags to locals, so they can keep them in their cars. This way they can monitor where their car is at all time.
AirTags are made by Apple and are small coin shaped. You place them in your luggage, cars, bags, or whatever you don’t want to lose. It links up with your Phone, allowing you to see in real time, where your stuff is. In this case, where your car is. If your car is way out of range, the AirTag puts out a signal, and anyone with an iPhone nearby can pick up the AirTag and then alert you through their connection. This also allows the police to track your stolen car, with permission from the owner.
Will this stop car theft, no. But they’re hoping it will slow down car theft. Last year, they had over two-hundred cars stolen, so if it makes a minimal dent in that number, it’s a success. Especially with something that only costs $29!
We all may already do this, but if you haven’t, is this something you’d do for your car? We have more on this story and others in today’s edition of a Few Things You Should Know!
