40 Percent More Burglary Claims
Over the last five years, the number of burglary claims in the Netherlands has risen from an average of 2500 per month in 2008 to more than 3500 per month in 2012. This is an increase of 40 percent. This was evident on Wednesday from an analysis of the Association of Insurers.
The risk for a burglary is highest in the province of Noord Brabant and the lowest in the province of Groningen. From the big cities Groningen seems to be the safest city. Citizens of Breda, Almere and Nijmegen have 4 times more chance on a burglary, according to the report.
The Association of Insurers found that burglars are most active in the dark months from October to March, with a clear peak during the two Christmas days.
