Car Body Damage in Essex
South Essex shows the most car crime, which is partly due to its close proximity to London, which AOL ranked the worst city to own a car in due to the high amount of car crime, vandalism and dangerous driving.
The worst affected regions for car body damage in Essex are West Thurrock and Romford, with a very large amount of car crimes being recorded in this area. Car crimes only starts to decrease until you reach the outer limits of the M25. However, there are still some significant areas of car crime away from the London area, such as Basildon and Southend-on-Sea. The safest districts in Essex are in the rural north, with Frinton-on-Sea and Saffron Walden recording the lowest amount of car crimes.
In terms of the most commonly targeted cars, Mercedes-Benz are most at risk, with 395 offences per 10,000 vehicles. This is closely followed by Fords, which claimed 252 offences per 10,000 vehicles.
