    Q70: Which is the best type of steering wheel lock for my car?

    The Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre (MIRRC), also known as Thatcham, has carried out research into this area of car security. It is recommended that when purchasing a steering wheel lock you purchase one that is 'Thatcham Approved'.

    Whilst fitting a steering lock may act as a deterrent to car thieves, it is worth noting that most of them can be removed in a matter of seconds. However, if yours is the only car in the area fitted with a steering lock then it is possible that the thief may target another car.
