THURROCK Neighbourhood Watch has reminded borough residents that they are offering discount priced ‘signal blockers’ which might prevent a car being stolen.
Car thieves have adapted technology related to keyless entry cars and can scan homes for the keys, ‘stealing’ the code and then being able to access cars parked outside homes.
One way to prevent this is to store your keys indoors in a pouch that blocks the signals.
They can be bought for £5 from the neighbourhood Watch scheme. Anyone interested can connect co-ordinator Roger Passfield via the group’s Facebook page.
