Vasco Traffic Cell Disposing Of Abandoned Vehicles

GOA : The Vasco traffic cell has written to the Mormugao Municipal Council (MMC) seeking its assistance in disposing of abandoned vehicles that have been identified in various areas of the port town. In May, the traffic cell had submitted a list of 20 abandoned vehicles located in various public places and carriageways, some of which are obstructing vehicular traffic while also posing a health hazard during the monsoon.“Abandoned vehicles are first identified by the police or traffic cell, and are then towed away with the municipality’s help.

In 2013, about 12 vehicles were towed away to an MMC yard at Sada. A notice was published calling owners to claim the vehicles. However, the council failed to proceed with the auctioning process.“Many unattended vehicles are lying in public places, depriving people from utilising these areas.

There is a risk of diseases like malaria, dengue, etc, spreading due to rain water accumulation and vegetation growth around these vehicles,” the traffic cell stated in the letter to the MMC.Since the civic body has not replied to the letter, an official from the traffic cell said that they will be shortly sending a reminder.“People dump their vehicles on the road if it is beyond repair, but never return to take it.
