Whilst walking my dog on Sunday afternoon around Calwell playing fields, I noticed, (couldn’t miss it really), a burnt out car dumped on the Tharwa Drive side of the fields. It was so badly damaged that it took me a while to work out what kind of car it was. I think it was a Mazda 121.
On my return home, I mentioned it to Mr Cholet, who commented “it’s still there then”. The last time he was at the fields with the dog was a week ago. So in that time the car has remained unmoved. My question is, what is the process for getting very obviously stolen vehicles moved – who takes responsibility?
Surely the emergency services would have been called to put out the fire. Wouldn’t the police automatically attend and therefore begin the process of having the car recovered? Even if it is not reported as stolen and remains unclaimed, doesn’t someone have a responsibiity to sort it out?
I haven’t bothered to report it on the basis that I am assuming that emergency services attended and it is already officially on their rader. But maybe not. Quite frankly, I am getting sick of seeing abandoned cars around this town. Unfortunately I have no answers.
