Crime Stoppers' My Wheels Warns Drivers in Areas Where Theft is Prevalent

'My Wheels' is a new vehicle safety app developed by Crime Stoppers in response to a high amount of vehicle theft across the country of Australia.

The app makes use of GPS technology in order to alert a user where they parked their vehicle and links this information to reports of vandalism and theft that may have recently occurred nearby. The app stores insurance and a vehicle's details, making it possible to reach even more pertinent information as needed.

The community-driven app empowers citizens to become an active part of preventing automotive theft through reporting that will earn them points as a good samaritan. Although the app certainly has value for drivers, My Wheels is also useful for cyclists and motorcycle owners who have invested a considerable amount of money in transportation.
