Alert: Vehicles stolen during test drives

Motorists are being warned after a number of cars have been stolen during test drives in Staffordshire.

A man pretending to be an interested car buyer has been arranging to meet sellers for a test drive, and has then driven off in the vehicles.

Seven offences have taken place since the 18 April in Lichfield, South Staffordshire and Cannock. The cars have all been advertised for sale on vehicle listing website AutoTrader.
The offender is described as a white man, approximately 6ft tall, of stocky build with stubble. He arrives at the location on foot, and often wears dark clothing with a cap or hat.

Detective Inspector John Quilty, Staffordshire Police CID, said: “We are reminding the public to be alert when selling their cars. Do not hand your keys over to a potential buyer, and be sure to ask for ID or confirmation of insurance before allowing a test drive to take place.

“If you do have an unusual meeting with a prospective buyer, or have any information in relation to these thefts, please report it to us on 101 quoting incident number 719 of 4 June.”
Alternatively, to remain anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Road Safety – Today’s Tip

It seems lots of people fail to understand what AVERAGE means.

They work out an average over a distance travelled.

Speeding up and slowing down when you see one doesn’t work – you may still get a ticket.
