Ever Fancied Hiring a Police Car?!

The Swiss have clearly had enough of thieves! So much so that frequent travellers who often leave their homes vacant can now hire a replica police car and park it outside their property! This quirky theft deterrent is said to cost the renter around £150 per week and so far they seem to have proved popular:

"They're very popular with people who travel a lot or who are going away on holiday," explained owner Andreas Birrer. "We park them on customers' driveways or outsides their homes and they are very effective deterrents. It started as a bit of a gimmick but it really took off".
 
The police on the other hand are a little more sceptical as to how effective the dummy police car are, particularly for those who leave their properties empty for weeks at a time:

 

Police spokesmen Urs Wigger said: "The question is whether it really does stop thieves. Especially if they see it is parked for weeks on a driveway and it never moves."

Although we can't guarantee your rent-a cop car will deter thieves, we at iCarhireinsurance are here to ensure that if your rental vehicle is stolen you are not held to ransom by the rental company over expensive excess fees
