Daily, on my way to the office, I’ve been spotting vehicles abandoned for a very long time. A car has been abandoned in an area of Muhaisnah-4 for several years. The broken windshields and glass splinters of the car pose danger to the children playing nearby.

According to a resident of the area, the car, which was in very good condition has been lying abandoned for more than three years. Surprisingly, the owners of the buildings recently carried out maintenance but never bothered to report to the authorities to remove the car for the safety of the children and the residents.

Similarly a motorcycle has been lying abandoned on the footpath in Garhoud area near GGICO metro station for more than one year. We want the authority to remove the vehicle, which has been causing great inconvenience.
