9 9 RSA Scenario This is a vehicle centred detail and perspective BUT a Vehicle is a Pivotal Crime for other crimes transporting – drugs, illegals, weapons, traded for other goods or services

10 10 Effects on Economy –5 000,000 vehicles entering & exiting South Africa annually –70 000 used vehicles imported in transit through South Africa for the sub-continent –20 000 fall off the back of the truck –No effective Transit System in place

11 11 Effects on Economy –Impact Illegal vehicles on our roads Loss of revenue: –To the state –Manufacturers & supporting industries [employ 700 000] workers –Finance Institutions –Insurers

12 12 Effects on Economy –< 84 000* vehicles stolen in South Africa 2009 with a recovery rate of about 40% – During 2010 we estimate 30 000 of these were illegally exported – Higher than the average value vehicles – in the majority perpetrated by international syndicates There is a noticeable migration of Vehicle Theft Methodologies

13 13 Effects on Economy –Illegally exported vehicles - insured losses amount to Billions of Rand –Major losses are also sustained by VAF Banks e.g. 2 Banks: 12 000 disappeared owners &vehicles at an average value of R120 000 = R 1, 440billion
