WFM - Now Comes the Problem of Abandoned Dead Autos...
Now Comes the Problem of Abandoned Dead Autos Editor Brooklyn Daily Eagle: For many years we have been accustomed accustomed to see now and then a dead horse lying in the public streets, and after a certain time the "dead horse ambulance" would come and remove them, a necessary sanitary proceeding. proceeding. This sight is rarely met with in this modern motor age, and instead instead we meet numerous "dead autos" of every description, .abandoned in vacant lots, on highways and so-called so-called so-called dumps. There Is perhaps no mechanical contrivance which disfigures disfigures a neighborhood more than these abandoned wrecks of autos which now are scattered in every conceivable place, selected by the former owners to get rid of them. While It is decidedly unethical to dump these useless vehicles onto the community in this manner, it is fair to ask what other way can they be disposed of. Something must be done, and it Is up to the city administartlon to do it. One plan would be for the city to convert the former "dead horse ambulance" ambulance" into a "dead auto ambulance" ambulance" and systematically collect these wrecks into a central yard where the same may be disposed of either by dumping at sea or pressed flat by a giant press, bundled up and disposed of as commercial scrap, for which there is a constant market.
