Park safely in France!

Anna Palluch 21.03.2019

6 billion Euro per year – -such losses, in accordance with the study of the IRU, are caused by theft of cargo in Europe. Statistics show that the most thefts are reported in Western Europe in Great Britain, France, The Netherlands and Germany. We picked safe places to park in France.

British Standards Institution (BSI) has calculated that in 2015 losses due to theft of cargo around the world amounted to almost 22 billion Euro. In Europe, the increase of such cases was recorded in 2015, i.e. since the beginning of the migration crisis. Methods of thieves are very different: from the most sophisticated (use of anaesthetic or numbing gas) to the traditional ones, like quietly cutting the tilts or opening the trailers.

Incidents occur most often at night, in the car parks or tailored stopping places near motorways. Unfortunately, the number of safe car parks in Europe is not enough, so you should take them into account at the planning stage route. To help you, we have prepared a list of guarded car parks where drivers can rest peacefully and not worry about their cargo or health.
