SGI says they are considering insurance consequences for people who leave keys and key fobs inside their vehicles when they are stolen.
Regina Police have issued a number of warnings for drivers to take their keys with them instead of leaving them in the car, because it can create a crime of opportunity.
In Saskatoon,Two days ago, the stolen truck that was involved in a high-speed crash, killing the driver of the stolen truck, had the keys inside when it was stolen.
Earl Cameron, the Executive Vice-President of SGI’s Auto Fund, said some provinces have implemented fines for people who leave their keys in vehicle.
“You could consider insurance consequences as a result of that type of a loss, those are all things that we’re looking at and considering, but we haven’t made any on what we would recommend to government for changes,” Cameron said.
Regina Police say around 60 per-cent of all stolen vehicles had the keys or key fob inside them at the time of the theft.
