Coloradans Against Auto Theft’s Kilo Car Shows Connection Between Auto Theft and Other Crimes – Via Denver’s Amélie
By Egotist / /
Ninety-seven percent of adult car thieves are charged with additional crimes, making auto theft a danger to more than just the car owner. To help Coloradans Against Auto Theft (CAAT) remind people to lock their cars and protect their community, Amélie created an ambient piece that would turn heads around downtown Denver.
The “Kilo Car” is a full-size vehicle body constructed of materials that look to be different types of drugs, from heroin to fentanyl. Messages on the car read, “Your unlocked car could be sitting in drug traffic,” and “Your unlocked car is about to go on a drug bender.”
The Kilo Car made its debut in a highly-trafficked area of downtown Denver in March, catching eyes and garnering media coverage from local broadcast stations. The car will go on to make an appearance at the Denver Auto Show in April, where show attendees will be encouraged to participate in a Kilo Car Twitter hashtag contest to help CAAT spread the car’s important message.
