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 between the engine and mufflers.
WHY is 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?
Any parking area where there are multiple vehicles in close proximity is at risk since thieves can crawl from car to car in minutes. Trucking yards, auto salvage lots, metal recycling, and fleet lots are at greater risk of catalytic converter theft.
