According to Mike, catalytic converters contain three precious metals, one of which is platinum. Easy to see why they're attractive targets for thieves.They are after the catalytic converters all over, because they can get a good price for them to use for drug money or whatever they are stealing to get money for. I forget what is in the catalytic converters that makes them so expensive and valuable. That is the first that I have heard about the handicap placards being stolen and sold! Wow! Of course, I don't have one, so that may be why I wasn't told about it when I got my driver's license renewed. And they have an informational TV on the wall to give you something to watch while waiting that didn't say anything about it, either. Maybe so as not to give anyone ideas?
