A Jerome Street resident wonders what it will take to get this abandoned car removed:
This abandoned car has 4 flat tires and the oh so lovely graffiti on it. I have called bpd with no response. Can someone please do something?! I love explaining this to my 5 year old.
I've had success reporting abandoned vehicles via the City's website (http://www.cityofboston.gov/transportation/abandoned/). Takes a few days, but each time the vehicle was removed within a week.
Or, call the Mayor's hotline and report it: make, model, color, plate (if it's got one) and location (in front of 349 Centre Street, for example.) I had good luck doing that for the few times a car was abandoned on our street in JP.
I seem to remember reading that if the car has a valid registration BTD is going to be reluctant to tow it.
This IS a report to the Mayor's Hotline (or, rather, to Citizens Connect, which is the equivalent phone app.)
I wouldn't mess around with the Bitchmobile. That is one superhero you do not want to torque off.
The Only way the BPD will respond to this type of complaint is if it is impeding traffic, as they truly are over paid traffic cops. Try and figure out a way to get this vehicle into the middle of the street then call the BPD.
Looks like a job for the Allston/Brighton torch.
Ha! I saw this the other night, but didn't know how long it had been there. I figured it had just happened and someone was going to wake up to an unpleasant surprise.
I would like to know the address of this abandon vehicle, so we can have the vehicle removed from the street.
