From the statistics shows us that 160,000 cases of motor vehicle thefthappened in Malaysia. From the graph, we can see motorcycle theft is worse than private car. From year1980 until year 1995, the motorcycle that had been stolen is around 10,000 cases. Butafter the year of 1995, the number of motorcycle that had been stolen had increased fromyear to year and it hit 120,000 cases in year 2005.
