Seremban City Council (MBS) issued an order to owners of 39 vehicles in Pusat Bandar Senawang near Seremban to remove them within three days.
MBS said a team from its legal and enforcement department pasted the notices on the vehicles during a recent operation.
“The operation was conducted following public complaints. If the owners fail to remove them, we will seize the vehicles as they are a public hazard, ” it said.
MBS said it had also carried out a similar operation in Taman Gadong Jaya, Labu.
However, a follow-up operation showed that owners of five of seven cars ordered to remove the vehicles had failed to do so.
The city council received praise from the public for its prompt response with many asking it to conduct similar operations at other areas.
They said apart from being an eyesore, these abandoned vehicles also occupied parking lots.
They cited Senawang Business Centre, Taman Jayamas and Seremban Jaya as areas where this was prevalent.
“An entire backlane at the Senawang Business Centre is filled with abandoned cars. Some of these vehicles had been involved in accidents, ” said a resident.
MBS was also asked to act against those who parked commercial vehicles such as buses, lorries and vans in residential areas.
The public can call the city council at 06-765 4444 for enquiries and to make complaints.
