The recurrent incidences of car theft in our society today, has made it necessary to research on a lasting formula that will put paid this menace. In another dimension, the time wastage encountered during the usual routine stop-and-checks carried out by our security agencies in Nigeria cannot be over emphasized. This study is intended to analyse how on one hand, the process of vehicle checks by Stop-and-search police officers can be successfully carried out from any spot including remote areas without subjecting vehicle owners or users to untold hardship and harassment. On the other hand, this study will also experiment on how stolen vehicles can be detected in the course of routine vehicle checks. Summarily therefore, this paper seeks to design a Real-time vehicle inspection and security management system that will send a short message to a particular designated short code, which in turns brings back all necessary information needed by the vehicle inspection team to verify the authenticity of the vehicle documents presented for review and validity of acclaimed vehicle ownership. The Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology was used for this work. The system is designed using PHP and MYSQL server. If the system is implemented with the right technology, the unnecessary time wastage during the routine stop-and check activities and the incidences of car snatching will be reduced to the barest minimum.
