Manitoba forces vehicle owners to get anti theft devices or risk losing insurance

Email   small font medium font large font


WINNIPEG (CP) _ The Manitoba government is forcing thousands of vehicle owners to get anti-theft immobilizers or risk losing their car insurance.

Starting Sept. 1, Manitobans with vehicles on the most-at risk list will need to install the electronic devices before they can renew their insurance and registration through the province's car insurer.

The crackdown is the government's latest answer to a serious car theft problem in Manitoba, particularly in Winnipeg.

It's believed to be the first province to enact such a law.

About 47,000 motorists own vehicles on the most-at-risk list.

Only vehicles that are used in and around Winnipeg are being targeted.
