Default Australia beats UK again

UK is second to Australia on this as well.


"Australia has the highest car theft rates in the western world and the time has come for a strong and coordinated approach," Mr McGrath said.

"In Victoria, 32,500 vehicles are stolen each year, part of a national total in excess of 122,000; the total cost of those thefts is more than $1 billion, a cost that in Victoria adds an extra $75 to the insurance premiums of our largest motor vehicle insurer, the RACV.


But National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council director Geoff Hughes said Australia still had one of the worst car theft rates of developed nations.

"Our theft rate is nearly twice that of the United States and four times that of Germany," he said.

"A car is still stolen every four minutes."

Western Australia has among the highest rates of car theft in the country.
