I would say that this is a good reminder to lock your car doors in Missouri and Illinois, but I'm not sure that would matter much as a new report says incidents in both states are exploding and especially in Illinois.
Before I found the statistics, I had a perception of where I thought you'd be most likely to have your vehicle stolen in Missouri. I was very wrong and there's a good chance that the city in the Show Me State you think would have the highest percentage of vehicle thefts is not where you think, too.
It's good to be famous. I've heard that said many times. I've also heard it said that there is no such thing as bad publicity. That being said, I'm pretty sure that Missouri is not happy about the fact that it's becoming quite notorious for stealing cars. Lock those doors and hide your keys.
I used to be a car nut before I had kids. At that point, I became an admirer and not a doer. Did you know that there are some awesome vehicle modifications which are actually illegal in Missouri? I had no idea about some of these items and figured some of us enthusiasts (present and former) could use a refresher.
If I would have had to guess this, I would have gotten it completely wrong. Did you know that the worst city in Missouri for auto theft isn't Kansas City or St. Louis. It's not Springfield either. No, the most likely place to have your vehicle stolen also happens to be one of the worst in America.
Some people believe in miracles while others don't. No matter which side you find yourself on, I believe you'll have to admit that it's remarkable that a train in Missouri slammed into a tractor-trailer yet there were no injuries reported.
