Junk Vehicle Removal Efforts

Processes of recycling auto junk in Groveport, Dublin, or Washington, should be done with the environment in mind. Escape from the clutches of a junky car in Pickerington, Valleyview, or Upper Arlington–make the call to the buyer of scrap vehicles! Here in Brice, Flint, and Westerville we buy old vehicles and include junk car towing as part of the process. We buy cars in Truro and Bexley while facilitating scrap car removal regardless of the weather, 6 days a week.

In January 2017, Adam Polisse posted a story titled ‘Freeport’s Enforcement of Junk Car Ordinances’ which told us the following:  “In 2016, 202 junk cars littering properties for too long were removed and cited in Freeport, a significant increase over previous years.   Non-running & unlicensed vehicles should be removed from private property (7) days after the owner is notified. Police typically address unsightly vehicles as complaints come in. Parking enforcement personnel began following these complaints, stepping up enforcement to get them cleaned up. Freeport officials are attempting to fortify their ordinances to beautify the region. The City Council’s preliminary vote seeks to expand the definition of nuisances to include tractor-trailers and vehicles under tarps.

Of the cars reported in 2016, many residents handled the violation by fixing the vehicle or renewing their tags. Some were issued citations to appear before for hearings and many vehicles were removed at a cost to the owner. Citations can surpass $50, based on the hearing outcomes.  The ordinance is similar to the way the city handles wood & brush piles under the rodent section of the nuisance ordinances.  Junk & unlicensed cars impact the entire city, and removal the old vehicles is the right thing to do.” The full story is available at http://www.journalstandard.com/news/20170127/freeports-enforcement-of-junk-car-ordinances-increased-in-2016

NBC News 10 WHEC delivered two stories this week regarding NY motor vehicle inspectors as follows: “This week’s power outage effecting the DMV’s inspection system appears to be up and running again. The system began to come back online after frustrations were plentiful within auto shops & for auto owners. Many of those with expiring inspections were attempting to take care of business and were told they would need to return. At My-Tee Auto, his mechanics were unable to connect to the state’s inspection system.

The system is designed so that you cannot keep doing inspections and filing them with the state later on. They had to turn away customers. There were similar headaches over at East Ave. Auto. Apparently no one was able to get any answers from the Department of Motor Vehicles.  The main help line at the state was down, nobody could get through.  The DMV did call back to say the inspection system is administered by a third party named Opus. Finally at 5 pm, Opus felt that the problem had been corrected. People obviously depend on them for inspections of their cars, and they (in turn) then depend state’s system for process completion. According to the auto shops, this is not the 1st instance of this happening, yet was the lengthiest the system has been down. While the DMV thinks the issues have been repaired, it may be best to call ahead to make sure everything is going smoothly again. The full article is available here.

Governor Andrew Cuomo approved a new vehicle check during yearly state inspections. The Senate passed a rule requiring auto inspection sites to verify if a vehicle’s windows are tinted beyond 70% of the outside light threshold. Cuomo gave approval to this new auto check, stating that if windows are too dark, the vehicle will now have failed an inspection.” The story is available here.

An editorial on September 5, 2016 by Charles Love in the Northwest Georgia News discussed the following: “We want a safe, clean and nice place to live. The community I speak of is North Rome; as a co-chair a group of great citizens through the North Rome Community Action Committee (NRCAC), we’ve seen a crime reduction recently of over 50%. Right now, because of the participation of our citizens, we are witnessing some great improvements. We’ve had several new businesses locate in our neighborhood; however, even with these gains, we have an issue of recycling that needs to be addressed. During the 80s and’90s, the city & country adopted recycling as a way to address environmental concerns and to be more efficient in waste reduction. The city of Rome entered the recycling business and located the primary center amid a residential community.

Recycling spread so quickly, the site outgrew the limited space and has become an eyesore in North Rome; now the rise in the cost of recycling and the reduction in profits made from selling recycled goods has made it problematic. The center in North Rome operates in the red, has limited personnel, uses inmate labor and is often unkempt, with trash scattered throughout the adjacent properties. There is talk about the trash on the streets brought on by the center. The NRCAC supports recycling and what it does to instill pride in our city, but is has become problematic to the property owners who want a nicer community. The NRCAC met recently and voted that the center needs to be relocated.

The NRCAC has presented concerns to the Solid Waste Commission. The cost, whatever it is, is far outweighed by the cost to the taxpayers in reduced home values in North Rome. Because new businesses may consider relocating in our community, like some have, the increased revenue should offset what is spent relocating the center. Who would want a recycling site within (2) blocks of where you live? Would you want to go out each day and see trash strewn and stacked outside where everyone can see it? We can continue the recycling initiative, as there is over $1.3M for the center in the 2013 SPLOST package yet to be used. It’s time for the leadership in Rome to pay attention and work together to address this issue. The full article is available here.

In the June 3, 2016 edition of WFYI Indianapolis an article titled ‘Marion County Mosquito Control’s Tire Recycling Day Is June 11’ was posted as follows: “The Marion County Department of Public Health has a Mosquito Control program, which encourages people to scrap unused tires amid a Tire Recycle Day on Saturday, 06/11 from 8 am to 4 pm. One of the simplest means to curb the mosquito population is to minimize regions of standing water where mosquitos tend to breed. Abandoned vehicle tires can gather water and become a place for mosquitoes to lay eggs. In partnership with Meineke Car Care, this tire recycling event collects used vehicle tires from Marion County residents at zero cost.  They will accept a maximum of (6) tires each. This event is for individuals and not for use by tire-related retailers or auto scrap yards. All picked up tires will be properly recycled.

Matt Sinsko, coordinator of the MCDPH Mosquito Control program says that this is one significant means for people to become involved in making their neighborhoods healthier places. In addition to the reduction of clutter, getting rid of old tires helps to control the possible spread of West Nile virus and other mosquito-based diseases.” The complete article is here: http://www.wfyi.org/news/articles/marion-county-mosquito-controls-tire-recycling-day-is-june-11

On June 1, 2016 an article titled ‘Abandoned vehicles litter roadways’ by Nancy Cook was posted on West Hawaii Today with the following information: “Abandoned vehicles dumped on the sides of Mamalahoa Hwy & elsewhere across the island are slowly disappearing, thanks to a new contract signed by Hawaii County. The news is a huge relief to Shirlee Shumway, who for six months has noticed many cars beginning to appear on the roadside. The county began tagging the abandoned vehicles, then removing them. Individuals were stripping the valuable components from the cars at night. According to Shumway, one car, covered in a silver tarp, had been on the Mamalahoa Highway, for 10 months. The car had no engine and wasn’t parked on private property–the tarp was old & held in place by lava rocks.

A decrease in scrap metal prices & the loss of markets in China over the past year contributed to a drop in county recycling efforts. But county Environmental Director Bobby Jean Todd says the new contracts with haulers are moving the cars off the roadside & onto county property. The cars collected by a contracted junk hauler are sold at auctions or they’re held at the county’s (2) car yards to be sent off for recycling. Haulers receive between $58 and $75 per car, plus $4.50 to $7.50 a mile to transport the abandoned vehicles. On public roadways, junk automobiles may be removed by calling the Hawaii PD.” The full article can be viewed at this link http://westhawaiitoday.com/news/local-news/abandoned-vehicles-litter-roadways

Our next topic explains how the vehicle insurance industry has been negatively impacted this past year.

A January 17, 2016 article composed by Bob Bryan on businessinsider.com titled ‘Hasn’t been this bad for the auto-insurance industry” told us the following: “To hit the open road, you typically need a car & car insurance. One could assume that as the car industry boomed in 2015, exceeding sales records, it would be the same trend for the auto-insurance industry. Jay Gelb, an insurance analyst at Barclays, says underlying profitability for the personal auto insurance industry, dipped to the lowest level in fifteen years in in the 3rd quarter this past year. There are a multiple reasons for this dip, but it basically all boiled down to one: A stronger economy. He says that these auto premiums are impacted by macro conditions since employment levels & consumer confidence influence newer vehicle sales. New car sales impact the volume of registered automobiles on the road. The more cars out on the roadways increased the probability for accidents. More accidents lead to more auto insurance claims. Claims cause lowered profit margins for these auto insurance companies. Additionally, people are driving cars further distances because of cheaper gas prices and increases in discretionary income; this contributed to a higher frequency of auto accidents.

Gelb says that the miles driven accelerated in 2015, resulting in accelerated motor vehicle accidents. The increase in crashes is also a reversed, increasing for (3) years straight for the first time in decades. Allstate said their earnings were down 38% 2014 because of the rise in frequency & severity of accidents. Typically, an owner pays a higher premium for a newer car, so if involved in a crash, the margin of the loss is smaller. Older cars with a lower premium, causes insurers to lose more on those. Consumers own vehicles for approximately an average of eleven years; this trend constrains auto insurance premiums because newer cars are more expensive to insure than older ones. Finally, healthcare & repair costs are on the rise, increasing pay-outs insurers are make; insurers face low premium growth, higher claims, and higher levels of payments. Insurers have higher prices, but the costs are rising too fast to keep profits up.” The complete article is available at this link.
