Ford reveals Xmas security offering

Returning to a parking spot to find a vehicle stolen is a tough ordeal at the best of times but is made worse when it means a driver is stranded in the winter weather.

With this in mind, Ford's Vehicle Security Team has announced the launch of new high-tech systems aimed at preventing car thieves from stealing this Christmas.

Working in conjunction with police agencies, the Blue Oval has developed multi-frequency locking systems and a volume-sensing alarm in order to help reduce car crime statistics.

Simon Hurr, a vehicle security specialist at Ford of Europe, explained that this time of year often brings a spike in the number of car thefts.

"As a former police special sergeant, I have witnessed first-hand just how crafty car criminals can be and the distress their actions can bring to victims," he said.

"Working with the police to analyse trends in car crime and the methods used by criminals, enables us to develop ways to prevent thieves from spoiling what should be the happiest time of year for Ford owners."
