Cost of car vandalism.

MORE than two in five motorists have fallen victim to car vandalism, a survey has showed. And more than 7 per cent of them have suffered at the hands of vandals in the past 12 months, the survey from insurer Direct Line found.

The total vandalism bill in 2007 is estimated at pounds 659 million - a rise of more than pounds 100 million on the 2006 figure.

The most common acts of vandalism were scratched paintwork and keys run along a vehicle, followed by damaged wing mirrors and smashed windows.
