The cities account for almost half the global population and the ratio of the people dwelling in the urban areas compared to the people living in the country side is fast increasing. Among other problems, it has created a dire problem of vehicle parking. According to a survey, almost 35% of the vehicle movement during rush hours in cities is in search of parking spots. This has increased the amount of time wasted on an unproductive quest of finding spots to park the cars and the spots are fast growing harder to come by in the metropolis. The other problem created by this of course the wastage in the form of fuel burning needlessly and the resultant environmental degradation because of the discharge of green house gasses. One of the little realized and more severe problems, however, with the increase in the number of cars in the urban areas is the inconvenience caused to thousands of people every day because they do not seem to keep track of their cars.
There are several reasons for this unfortunate phenomenon. One of the major causes of not finding the cars in the huge automobile jungle of the city because there are so many cars out there that one often completely forgets where he or she parked it, especially when the car has to be parked a few blocks away in a neighborhood that is not so much frequented by the said person. It takes hours for people to look for their vehicles. The second most common reason is the removal of the car by city authorities. When people park cars where they were not supposed to be parked, the gentlemen from the municipal department of the city or the policy department would often tow away the cars to some kind of a holding yard. Some departments around the world have started to freeze the cars with wheel locks nowadays but the vehicles are still towed physically in most cases. The third reason would be quite obvious to anyone who has ever lived in a city: carjacking and other vehicular crime. People get their cars stolen all the time. Even if the police do catch the culprits, it still takes days, often weeks on their part to recover the vehicles stolen; meanwhile the owners of such vehicles feel the apparent inconvenience caused by thievery.
For all such reasons whereby the cars are lost in the cities, it is highly recommended that you get a car tracking device Australia installed in your personal vehicle. These devices are small and are easily installed in a discreet manner. They use GPS technology to track your car in the real time and help you find/ recover it if your car ever gets lost or stolen.
