An English tourist had left Sardinia a year ago, never returning, leaving the island near the small port of Sant’Antioco, on the south west coast, his car which over the months had become a landfill.
And it is there that today the agents of the local police of Sant’Antioco, after a long process that also saw the involvement of the English Consulate and the Foreign Ministry, picked her up and took her away.
The foreign-plate car is just the latest of the vehicles the local police have removed in the course of a major crackdown on car abandonment. In 2019 there were 89 ‘wrecks’ abandoned along the roads, now only 16: the other 19 cars were removed in the last week, often involving and convincing the owners, while in other cases they were taken away with the tow truck. with an additional cost for the holders. “We are very satisfied with the work our Local Police is carrying out – comments the mayor, Ignazio Locci – the program started in the summer of 2019 has produced important results. Among these, this morning’s milestone with the removal of the foreign car that , in addition to being an ugly postcard for our marina, it had now also become a small landfill, representing a problem of urban decor. Having this car removed is the symbol of the great work done so far “.
