Sec. 48-210 - Declared a public nuisance
The accumulation and storage of abandoned, wrecked, junked, partially dismantled or inoperable motor vehicles on public and private property is hereby found to create an unsightly condition upon such property tending to reduce the value thereof, to invite plundering, to create fire hazards, and to constitute a nuisance. Such accumulation and storage of vehicles is further found to promote urban blight and deterioration in the community; to violate the zoning regulations of the city in many instances, particularly where such vehicles are maintained in the required yard areas of residential property; and that such wrecked, junked, abandoned or partially dismantled or inoperable motor vehicles are in the nature of rubbish, litter, and unsightly debris. Therefore the accumulation and storage of such vehicles on public and private property, except as expressly hereinafter permitted, is hereby declared to constitute a nuisance which may be abated as such, which remedy shall be in addition to any other remedy provided by law.
