WATCH YOUR CAR is a national vehicle theft prevention program funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of Justice. It is a voluntary vehicle registration program designed to deter auto theft and assist in the apprehension of auto thieves. Vehicle owners/lessees sign an agreement stating their vehicle is not normally used between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. If a police officer observes the vehicle being driven anywhere in the United States during these hours, they may stop the vehicle and verify the vehicle owner/lessee is operating it, or a person designated by the owner/lessee.

The WATCH YOUR CAR program is administered by the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division of the Utah State Tax Commission and is provided as a public service, FREE of charge, to owners/lessees of vehicles registered in the State of Utah.

If you're interested in protecting your car -- police officers across the nation are ready to... WATCH YOUR CAR!
