When And Where Your Car Is Most Likely To Be Stolen Or Hijacked In South Africa

According to the Car-tracking company, Tracker, more than half of all vehicle-related crime occurs in Gauteng. The province is followed by Durban in KwaZulu-Natal for both the highest number of thefts and hijackings. These incidences according to research conducted by the company occur mostly on a Saturday and are reported between 20:00 and 21:00. 

The information was compiled from Tracker’s more than 1.1 million installed vehicle tracker base in South Africa. The Western Cape came in third position, with hijackings mainly occurring in Khayelitsha while theft is highest in Cape Town central business district (CBD).

Other theft and hijacking hotspots in South Africa included eMalahleni in Mpumalanga, Ibhayi in the Eastern Cape, Rustenburg in the North West, Polokwane in Limpopo and Bloemfontein in the Free State. While the Northern Cape has less than 1% of the total reported vehicle-related crime, hijackings are primarily reported in Postmasburg and theft in Kimberley in the Northern Cape.
