'Vehicular crime wave': Baltimore suing Kia and Hyundai over lack of anti-theft tech

Baltimore City is suing Hyundai and Kia in federal court for actions the city says are fueling a "vehicular crime wave." The lawsuit, filed Thursday, claims the business decision by the automakers to not equip vehicles with anti-theft technology is behind the city's massive spike in car thefts. "Well, they should have provided it. Everyone else seems to provide it," said Hyundai owner John Simms.
