Why People Abandon Their Vehicles
There are all sorts of reasons why people prefer to leave their car on a random property other than their own. The car could have a lot of issues that are too expensive to fix, so people decide to abandon it. Towing the vehicle might be too expensive for them, so the easier option is to leave it on a random property and hope that it gets towed by others. Old cars with an overheated engine– discard. That’s people’s thought process. It’s not worth spending money trying to repair this issue. Instead, it would make a terrible investment, so they abandon their car.
Is Abandoning a Vehicle Punishable?
The short answer is yes. It’s a safety hazard to people, animals, and the environment in general. However, it can sometimes be very difficult to find the owner of the vehicle. This is especially true if records show a specific owner, but they claim that they sold it to someone else.
Why are Abandoned Vehicles a Danger?
Vehicles can release liquids into the soil, such as oil, coolant, and ATF. These liquids contaminate the soil and damage the environment. Animals and other living things suffer greatly from these contaminants. Additionally, the body and components of the vehicle become a threat too. As they start to decay, they release hazardous substances.
