FROM MSN RE: Cartheft rankings....


* Las Vegas: Sin City's rate per thousand was sliced nearly in half, from 1,035 per 100,000 residents in 2007 to 563. It now ranks ninth nationally after occupying second place in 2007.

This will break the heart of the LVHATERS Association

NYC ranked 223rd!

156 thefts per 100,000 residents. That surprised the heck out of me...thought it would be higher.

LV car theft rates are still high. It's just that half the people could barely afford their lease payments in the first place, and had their cars repossessed after they lost their jobs, so there are now fewer cars to steal.

1992 Honda Accord
1995 Honda Civic
1990 Toyota Camry
2005 Dodge Ram Pickup
1994 Nissan Sentra
2006 Nissan Altima
2006 Ford F150 Pickup

No, they got their chop shops, I mean homes, foreclosed on and went back to whence they came...

Nobody in NYC drives. I wonder what the numbers would be if it was cars stolen per 1000 cars registered...

NYC encompasses 5 boroughs...Queens (LI), Staten Island, Brooklyn, The Bronx and Manhattan. (2009 estimated NYC population was 8,391,881)
http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/census/popcur.shtml

There were 1,756,863 standard (non-commercial) vehicles registered in NYC in 2009.
NYS DMV - Statistics - Vehicle Registrations in Force - 2009 (http://www.nydmv.state.ny.us/Statistics/regin09.htm - broken link)

(8,391,881 / 100,000) x 156 / (1,756,863/1000) = 7.45 per 1000 registrations.

Yeah, but don't forget that every household in Las Vegas has at least two cars minimum. It's a requirement. If there are five people in the house of driving age, they will have at least seven cars.

Only one car in my household. I do have a few model cars if that counts as the 2+ cars per household.
