WHAT are catalytic converters?
Catalytic converters are part of the vehicle's exhaust system. They help clean emissions to defend against air pollution using chemical reactions to metal, and are attached to the vehicle's undercarriage.
WHY is cat converter theft increasing?
Catalytic converters are prone to theft because they contain valuable, precious metals like rhodium and palladium. The price per ounce of these metals skyrocketed in 2020, making them a quick 'n easy target for criminals to steal and scrap for cash.
WHO's at risk for converter theft?
Larger vehicles (Tractors & Box Vans) are more appealing to thieves because they sit higher off the ground + their larger converter size. Trucking yards, auto salvage lots, metal recycling, and fleet lots are at greater risk of catalytic converter theft.
