All the unwanted vehicles have a negative impact on us and the environment in one way or the other. This is not only confined to vehicles that are drivable and run on the roads. There are also junk vehicles that are not-roadworthy and simply kept parked in garages.


Unwanted vehicles can harm you in several ways if kept on your property for the long run. This is why it is not advisable to hold scrap or junk cars which are not repairable anymore.

To get into more detail on how keeping your unwanted vehicle can harm you, go through the points listed below:

  1. Scrap or salvage cars that are corroded or have shattered windows or no windows at all. Often get inhabited by undesirable guests like rodents, bugs and other pests. This can result into infestation and can also destroy your property as well as its surroundings.
  2. In most of the states and city government has made it mandatory for city officials to remove unwanted or abandoned automobiles. So, if you own an old or scrap automobile parked in your driveway have it removed or your city officials will haul it away considering it as a public nuisance.
  3. Salvaged automobiles that are ideally parked in back lawns or back yards get damaged or rusted with the change in weather. Due to this their parts and components get rusted for instance, tyres get cracked, hardened and worn out and its brakes also get rusted.
  4. As discussed above various materials of vehicles like smashed headlights, plastic bumpers, rubber of tyres cannot be decomposed easily and so they linger and get worn out or rusted.
  5. Automobiles that are not repairable or are in bad condition are not only harmful for us. But also for the environment and its surroundings. They release several fluids such as engine oils, coolants and brake fluids. They can be immensely hazardous to water, animals and plant life on and surrounding your property.
  6. Antifreeze, which is a thick and greenish liquid used in vehicles is very harmful and a highly poisonous liquid. Its sweet aroma unluckily serves as an appealing snack for hungry animals. In fact, it is said to be a sweet but deadly poisonous to animals.
