The National Insurance Crime Bureau issues a ranking of the top cities for auto theft called the Hot Spot report. In the 2013 Hot Sort report issued last month, Michigan only had one city in the top 100. Surprise: It’s Detroit coming in at 23. The next closest Michigan city is Flint which came in at 153. One rather shocking element of the report is that 9 of the top 10 cities in this years report are in California. Despite the better than expected placing on the report, Michigan residents and auto insurance carrier face serious loses here in cities like Detroit and Flint. Michigan is also facing serious loses related to fraudulent auto related injury claims which can launch into the six figures in medical costs in a very short time.
