CdA To Target Abandoned Vehicles

During the week of Nov. 7-11, Coeur d’Alene police will be looking for abandoned vehicles. Vehicles in violation will be tagged for 48-hour removal. If the vehicles are not moved in the allotted time, they will be towed. Prior to towing, attempts to locate the owners will be made. In the event owners cannot be located, not only will the vehicle be tagged, there will also be a letter left on the vehicle explaining the importance of removal. If a citizen reports an abandoned vehicle, all those reports will be followed up by the police department. Why all the special attention for abandoned vehicles now? As the winter season approaches, these vehicles can be a problem. Not only are they an eyesore, they can cause traffic problems and collisions, and make it difficult for ambulances and fire engines to access portions of neighborhoods in the event of an emergency/Victoria Bruno, Coeur d'Alene Today.

Question: Do you have any abandoned vehicles in your neighborhood?
