AN old Nissan Sunny has been abandoned at a playground in Taman Perak, George Town.

Checks revealed that the car was in very bad condition and its tyres were deflated.

A resident, in her late 40s, said the car had been there for more than a year and no one came forward to claim it.

“There are gaps in the windows. Rainwater may enter the car and it may become a breeding ground for Aedes mosqui-toes.”

She said the car could pose a danger to children who visited the playground.

“I hope someone will remove the vehicle.”

ACTIONLINE:

Penang Island City Council councillor Ong Ah Teong said he had instructed the council enforcement team to tow the car.

“We will also lodge a police report so that the owner of the vehicle can trace it if he needs it.”
