- an abandoned car
- a vehicle that is parked illegally
Simply put, abandoned and illegally parked vehicles are eyesores in neighborhoods. They also can create public safety hazards to its’ citizens and visitors. Most municipalities accept calls from residents and business owners regarding these offenses. Typically, the local police will handle the situation and have the vehicle relocated and removed.
Parking in a fire lane, is not only illegal but it also puts everyone else in the building and immediate area in danger. If you happen to notice a vehicle parked where it should not be for consecutive days; it is best to notify the local authorities.
