Track every car? Sounds like it could happen very soon…

Justin and Kate

Police say they want every vehicle in the state to be fitted with a tracking device to stamp out motor vehicle theft.

While the numbers are coming down, Victoria has the highest number of car thefts in the nation.

Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill has told Justin and Kate tracking devices will be fitted to about 1000 cars under a 12-month trial beginning in September.

They will then evaluate the best technological option before a statewide roll-out.

Tracking itself is not new technology – in fact phones allow Uber users to track their cars (see image above).
