What's the story with this outfit? Their van, covered in dirt and bird shit with a hole in its windshield, has been parked in the street near Plaza Kyoto for a number of years. A sedan of theirs, equally filthy, seems to still get used, on occasion, since it's not always parked behind the van.

Their office(?)/printing plant(?) has been located kitty-corner to the laundry for years. At least that's what the sign in the window says/said. I wash my car once a year, unless there's been lots of rain.....and always felt my wheels looked pretty good compared to the ones you've described. No one even bothers to write "lavame" on them anymore.

At one time I had a number to call to have junk towed, but I seem to have misplaced it.

I'm told that one should call Proteccion Civil to have abandoned junk towed: 554-2040.

Protección Civil is the same as the Bomberos. The number you gave is the phone number we used to use to call the Policía Municipal but that goes unanswered now.

I’m surprised you still don’t know about my Telephone Tips & Useful Numbers page.

Our partners were told to call 554-2040 to have an abandoned vehicle towed from our road. The call was successful. Looking at your list of numbers I'm not seeing a number to call regarding junk vehicles. perhaps you could call the appropriate number to get that junker removed.

Sorry. Was I not clear? That number is the local police, and they stopped answering it sometime early last year. You’re saying your friends called recently and someone answered?

Gee, for CAR REMOVAL I would think to call TRÁNSITO,. You know, the TRAFFIC COPS.

But I’d be extremely careful complaining about other people’s property. The newspaper people suffer enough in Mexico and money is tight for them. Part of our local culture is to be tolerant of others, to live and let live. If it doesn’t affect you why complain about it? Just because it’s something you would do in the States?

I’m certainly not going to call and complain about anyone’s junker cars unless they’re broken down in front of my home oozing fluids into the street or obstructing traffic. But in this case it’s in front of their own business.

The call was made a couple of years ago. I'm back in Montana, so someone else would need to make the call to Transito.
You complain - with good reason - about much that the local authorities do and don't do. At your suggestion, I've contacted them about certain matters, but with no apparent result. Getting that piece of crap off the road would be an admittedly minor, but doable, step to make the place just a little bit nicer.
