Abandoned vehicles

Leave a comment

Maybe once or twice a week I walk down to the local supermarket or to the laundry a little further away. If I take a side street,  I come out behind the Asiana restaurant. Every time I have passed by since we arrived, a blue Honda saloon car has been parked  on the road. It has not moved in well over a year.

Abandoned Car

I have an app from the Ministry of Municipality & Urban Planning or ‘Baladiya’. This allows me to report issues on my phone.

On Saturday afternoon I reported this abandoned car. I completed the location screen, took a photo of the vehicle and pressed send.

An automatic response came within seconds to say my report had been received. Two days later I had a phone call requesting clarification of location. When I walked by  yesterday the car was gone.
