I Want This Abandoned Car Removed, And I Want See Click Fix To Help Me

I drove past this abandoned car once or twice already, I think it’s only been left there in the last few days.  It’s on the 4600 block of Large parked next to Simpson.  It just occurred to me that this is an excellent opportunity to highlight SeeClickFix.  My father used this to get an abandoned van next to his side alley removed.  Allegedly you just log into the website, give the address of your issue and what the problem, obviously a photo would be awesome.  Of course I have 7:

So here’s my issue logged with SeeClickFix. It looks like Philly’s 311 service monitors it and will take care of it.  I’m loving the idea of this service since in neighborhoods like Frankford you may have only a few really dedicated residents that are willing to stay diligent on quality of life issues.  So let’s see where this goes.  I’d love for all who care about Frankford to start using this service.

UPDATE: This car was gone pretty quick.  I was away for a few days but when I came back it was gone.  I’m almost positive it had something to do with my submitting this issue.

  2. I have used that website a few times with issues in the neighborhood. Once it was for a pile of tires that popped up on Sellers St. and I did use it to report an abandoned car. The problem was fixed within a few days. They seem to be very helpful.

  3. I’ve used them and they solved one issue out of three, but only after numerous complaints on this site. I just hope when if someone gets hurt because of a corner calvert issue that they will be willing to payout for it. And yes I sent photos. They do sent me em’s telling me the problem has been solved, but hey I live on the corner where the prob is, and it hasn’t…

  4. I reported Orthodox Street needs repaving if anyone wants to jump on that bandwagon! So bumpy!!
