STAMFORD, Conn. (WCBS 880) -- Abandoned and neglected cars are getting the book in Stamford, Connecticut.

As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, a public street in Stamford is no longer a long-term parking lot for a hunk of junk. Apparently, enough people complained in Stamford about sloppy jalopies that just sit, taking up valuable parking spaces.

Adams himself spotted an abandoned car on the west side of Stamford, with a bright orange police sticker on the driver’s side window.

Sometimes, people hold onto old vehicles and never use them. They succumb to time and elements, tires go flat, and the body rusts out.

The Stamford Advocate reported that over the past two days, Stamford police have put stickers on 65 zombie cars – warning the drivers to move the vehicles or they will be towed.

After five days, drivers cannot keep their cars parked in the same space in the city.

Police are on the hunt again for more abandoned cars in Glenbrook, Springdale, and the North End.
