Garage helps put the brakes on theft of number plates in St Helens
8:00am Saturday 26th January 2013 in News
MOTORISTS can protect their car’s identity by taking advantage of a free scheme to fit tamper-free number plate screws.
Polar Ford on Sherdley Road has joined forces with police to alert motorists about the increase in number plate thefts.
Stolen plates are used by criminals to give vehicles false identities and use them in crimes.
Sgt Frank Stott said: “In these difficult economic times crime such as this becomes more widespread.
“We are grateful for schemes such as this in helping the community take measures to help combat the problem.
“Using the tamper-proof screws will make it much harder for number plates to be stolen.”
Car owners interested in having their number plates fitted with free anti-tamper screws should visit Polar Ford on the Sherdley Road on Saturday, February 9.
