The problem of abandoned and derelict vehicle varies from island to island. On Oahu, the city secured two lots this summer to remove the junked cars off its city golf courses where the vehicles were being stored temporarily.
Complaints about junked cars in neighborhoods across the state hit a crescendo last year. The eyesore threw light on a dilemma over automobiles left on the sides of roads. State lawmakers have been hearing measures to try and solve the complaints. One bill to require removal of cars within 10 days is getting push-back from the counties. The real issue is lack of space to store derelict and abandoned vehicles.
