VAAL TRIANGLE - The Easter weekend is one of the busiest times for criminals, with break-ins historically increasing over the period. This is according to the head of Auto & General Insurance, Ricardo Coetzee. Coetzee says this is caused by the fact that people let their guard down as they enjoy the long weekend. He says that their data has shown that break-in claims during Easter increased by 96% compared to any other normal weekend in 2019. Last year saw an increase of 89% after the hard lockdown in 2020.
