Thieves like easy targets.
It may suprise
you to learn that taillights are a popular item to steal. Not only
the aftermarket clear lens type, but also the factory taillights
are often stolen and resold on the internet or through crooked shops.
Why steal taillights?
First, they are expensive to replace. If a dishonest person breaks a taillight and finds that a replacement costs about $150 or more, they figure a trip to the mall with a screwdriver will save them alot of money! (The mall parking lot provides a wide selection to choose from without much danger of being caught.)
Second, thieves know that taillights aren't numbered and can't be traced, so they are easy to sell on internet auction sites, often bringing nearly $100! Easy money!
