Abandoned vehicles in Govt quarters to be removed

PUTRAJAYA: The Prime Minister’s Department (JPM) Property and Land Management Division has identified 17 abandoned cars and 50 motorcycles to be removed from the government quarters here in Ops Alih within two months.

JPM senior deputy secretary-general Datuk Mohd Sallehhuddin Hassan said the abandoned vehicles would be taken to the Putrajaya Corporation Abandoned Vehicles Depot in Precinct 20 and would be disposed of after six months if no claim was made by the owners.

He said the division had counter-checked with the Road Transport Department, police and banks before removing the vehicles in the operation, which was being carried out to optimise parking lots at the government quarters.

“These vehicles are causing problems to the local residents.

“What we regret is the vehicles don’t belong to the quarters’ residents, ” he said after launching Ops Alih at the Civil Servants Housing Phase 4C in Precinct 8 yesterday.

In yesterday’s operation, Mohd Sallehhuddin witnessed the removal of two abandoned cars, a Perodua Kancil and Kelisa.

He said if the owners would like to claim their vehicles, they have to pay the fine and costs, including the towing charge of RM150 and depot fee of RM10 per day. — Bernama
