Why Insurance Makes Car Life Easier

Jun 3, 2008
GIECO, an automobile insurance company, has reported that according to their gathered data, catalytic converters are the leading parts that are stolen in today's cars. These converters can be sold to junk shops and auto car dealers, who may or may not be part of the scheme.

Basically, the gadget plays an important role. It "converts" the toxic gases produced by the car itself by filtering it before it shoots out of the car's exhaust pipe. Normally, these thieves position themselves in a parking area or perhaps, a busy street with parallel parked cars to eliminate suspicion from other passersby.

If you have been following a vehicle in front of you, and that car has no break lights, watch out. If that person inside is a fraudster, he or she will floor the breaks and chances are, if you drive too near its tail, you'll crash to it. This requires the fraudster to have a conniver since he or she cannot just floor the breaks for nothing. The conniver will try to swerve at the direction of the fraudster's car to make him or her step on the breaks.

To prevent this from happening, do not ride the tail of the car in front of you. Keep some distance and drive carefully. Be cautious of your surroundings.

Forensic paint analysis is an anti-crime division of the authorities in charge of tracking down bad guys who have utilized cars in their crimes. If ever you wonder how they do it, here's how.

The paint of the car is coated many times. The first coating (direct to the metal casing of the car) is the electron coating. This coating is dark gray in color. Then another batch of paint is added, this time, the color is either light gray or red brown. Then, the third and final batch is added (the color that is visible to the eye).

Now, here's the coolest trick. Have you heard of the color spectrum? No matter how alike the colors of the cars are, the spectrum says otherwise. If the car bumps another car, or a post or a person, a part of the car paint chips away and sticks to the other. Forensic paint analysts use the spectrum method to determine the color of the car, the model (some car manufacturers only use a certain type of paint) etc.

When enough data is gathered, they go search for the culprit and believe me, this has been proven effective.

Before, making a hit and run is very easy. You arrive at a party, drink some booze and stuff, prepare to leave and fumble for your car keys. You actually think that you're sober but the truth is, you're not (most drunks think this way). You drive on the highway, then suddenly, bam! You hit a car. You got to your senses and scared to be actually held responsible for it, so, you run. Isolated place, wee hours in the morning, perfect crime.

But not anymore. Science has unveiled its latest discovery on forensic paints. Yes, you heard it right, forensic paints.
