Metro Government is now impounding vehicles caught in the act of illegal dumping.
The first vehicle was yanked off the streets:
“The impoundment sends a strong message to those who are dumping that Metro is serious about stopping the illegal activity,” said Councilcritter Butler. “This is a quality of life issue for neighborhoods and an economic issue for our community as well because metro spending nearly $500K per year on illegal dumping.”
LMPD charges $112 for the towing fee, $13 in administrative costs and $13 per day for storage. That’s $138 for the first day.
If only vehicles could be impounded for animal abuse, domestic violence and general asshattery.
