What is an abandoned or unserviceable vehicle and why are they considered to be a violation of City Code?
Junk Motor Vehicles: Except as provided in Yerington municipal code it is unlawful to leave any unregistered or uninsured motor vehicle on public or private property which is wrecked, dismantled, partially dismantled, inoperative, abandoned or discarded. All of these vehicles are considered junk motor vehicles.


Junk vehicles typically leak fluids such as anti-freeze, gasoline and other automotive fluids onto the ground, contaminating the local area. These vehicles also create an attractive nuisance to children by presenting an enticing, but dangerous, plaything. There are several documented incidents of children becoming locked inside a vehicle and succumbing to the extreme temperatures produced within the vehicle.

Inoperative vehicles also detract from neighborhoods appearance and can invite an undesirable element into our community.
