Get rid of it!

Been seeing this abandoned truck on the side of the road for about 3 months. Doors off, a real mess – who knows how long it has been sitting there. Looked like a real long time.

I finally had a chance to pull over and make a CitySourced report about it on Sept 5th.

Here is my report with photo to CitySourced: http://www.citysourced.com/report/6906/abandoned-vehicle 

Abandoned Vehicle - Issue Reported in Valley Center, CA

I drove by the spot 2 days later and noticed that it was gone!

Was totally (happily) surprised to see it gone. Fantastic! I had hoped my report would lead to it being taken away, but didn’t think it would be so fast.
