New device to reduce stolen cars in Prague

The city of Prague plans to buy a new device that will recognize stolen cars according to the registration number of the car. The device will scan all registration numbers of passing cars and compare them with the data from the national register of stolen cars. Stolen cars will be immediately reported to the police.

Prague got inspired by German city Munich where the number of stolen cars dropped by 40 %. The city of Prague have chosen 21 places where to place the new system. The system for 74 million CZK will be installed by the end of this year, the trial mode should start at the beginning of 2008.

More than four thousand cars have been stolen in Prague this year, which is almost a half of all stolen cars in the Czech Republic. The most stolen cars are of Skoda, Volkswagen, Ford, Peugeot and Renault brands.
