An Electrician has wired up his van to zap thieves with 1000 volt shocks. Carried out after being robbed of £5,000 gear taken from his van, Ray Taylor took the step to avert such from happening again.
Losing the expensive car equipment over a period of two years now, police equally agreed that the process was perfectly legal on a condition he will put a warning sign on his vehicle.
Aged 61, Taylor wired his van up and accompanied it with a siren which was fitted in his Citroen Dispatch. He explained that if the sirens don’t frighten the thieves, then they will get a shock next.
Hailed from Wolverhampton, Taylor told The Sun: “They’ll get Zapped.”
Maintaining that wannabe thief trying to get into the van will be hit with a shock through the door handle, Taylor stated that the intruder will be faced with a siren and with a two firm-arm sounding like a bomb.
And combined, the two firm arms cause a 120-decibel din, an equivalent to a Jumbo Jet taking off.
“It has solved all of my problems, now I can sleep easy. The shock is not however going to do any lasting effect, but will make them jump and tumble a bit.” Taylor admitted.
If you wish to do same, Taylor is charging £380 to place a similar system in your van or car. Since he has copyrighted his design, you will be fitting a 1000 volt shocker from a fly swatter to a metal plate on the door of your vehicle.
