Rusted-Out Truck ‘Sitting’ On Palmetto Road

April 5, 2018

[Written by Don Burgess]

This rusted-out Ford truck has been sitting in a bus lay by on Palmetto Road for the past week.

The truck, which is missing both the front and back licence plates, has four flat tyres in addition to rust on all four sides of the vehicle.

A police spokesperson said that if people think there is an abandoned vehicle they should report it to the Transport Control Department to deal with.

    That thing has been reported months ago. It has had tickets placed on it. It is known to the necessary authorities.

    This vehicle has been sitting here for WEEKS! You’d think that a Traffic Officer would have seen it at least once or twice in their diligent travels. Also someone at DPT should have reported it by now as it is in a bus lay-by causing obstruction. And finally W&E during their dutiful road cleaning have to be aggravated seeing it still here. Everybody has seen it – nobody is doing anything and, at the end of it all, someone gets their vehicle towed to the dump free of charge.

      Typical dodging of responsibilities. The owner should not be difficult to track down via engine serial numbers. Remove it & send the bill to the owner. Failure to pay bill will result in no vehicles registered to that person till bill is paid.

    It is blocking a bus stop – Bus garage or W&E should just move it to the airport.

    For the past week? More like the past month and a half!

  5. wondering says:

    that truck has been on palmetto road for at least a decade – it didn’t magically end up at the bus stop

    That someone could be such a lout is incredible but how is it these things are such a mystery ?

    Even if there are no license plates on the vehicle there should be a system where the engine and frame numbers are cross referenced with the license plate number and therefore the plate number should not be needed to track the last owner of these dumped vehicles .

    Not too long ago some lovely person dumped two scooters in my area and when I reported it to the Police and TCD both said there was nothing they could do without a license number even though we’d been on computerized vehicle registration that requires engine and frame numbers as well as the license plate # for decades .

    It has been there for longer than a week. I was wondering if the bus drivers had reported it, as surely it must be in their way..

  8. Micro says:

    At least a week has been there for a while. It was sitting in that yard across the street behind it.

  9. Sunshine says:

    No, it’s sat there for more than a week. It’s been there roughly a month now. I live in the area and drive across there every day and see it… still there. Hmm…..

  10. Speedy Petey says:

    so can’t or won’t anybody DO SOMETHING about it….. on the whole island.

  11. Observer says:

    Disgusting………nobody seems to want to take responsibility. TCD should have dealt with this long ago but staff I guess choose to just drive past it everyday.

    Minister Burch could have it moved with an accompanying photo op

    Hustle truck??

  14. St. David's says:

    Not just sitting there. The wheel rims gouged into the newly asphalted road until the driver pulled over.

  15. Whistling Frog says:

    There are also abandon vehicles in the Parsons Rd. Play Ground parking lot. The people owning these vehicles should be notified and warned to move their abandon vehicles or be fined under the dumping of trash in a public place. The government needs to clamp down on these matters.
