    hi everyone!
    Been on here a while but haven’t posted much. I’m sure everyone is aware of van theft/tool theft at the moment. There’s a petition at the moment which is asking for tougher sentences and more to be done to the people taking tradesmens livelihood. I’ve attached a link for it if anyone wants to sign it. Credit to Peter booth ( pb plumber ) for creating the petition.

    Petition: Investigate what more can be done to tackle van theft and van tool theft.

    My bad if there is, I’ve had a look through and couldn’t see anything but fell free to have it removed if it is duplicated

    I already posted it Ashly. However with something as important as this, duplicates can do no harm ;)

    Manufacturers can play a much bigger role in preventing van tool theft. Some vans are so easy to break into (various examples on YouTube) that you might as well advertise "Free tools here" on the side of your van. If manufacturers put a bit more thought and effort into physical security of their vehicles it'd make it a lot harder for toe rags to break into them.
    I've just shelled out for deadlocks on my van. I can't afford it but I can afford losing all my tools even less.

    100%. My van can be got into with something that cost £10 and anyone can get hold of it. It’s madness. They should fit deadlocks as standard to them and even if it added 500 or so to the price I don’t think people will mind as it’s secure.
