The mayor answers questions from the public in this series.

By Mayor Alan Arakawa

Q: I am aware of the County’s abandoned vehicle ordinance: vehicles parked over 24 hours can be abandoned, causing a nuisance.

However, what about when you have large boats, trailers, school buses, or commercial vehicles (i.e. a lunch wagon) parked on the streets for days, weeks or months?

This is occurring in our neighborhood.

Are you allowed to park a boat on the street/shoulder and leave it there?

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A: No, those vehicles are considered abandoned because they have been left unattended on a public highway for more than 24 hours (Maui County Code 10.48.200).

Additionally, Maui County Code 10.48.210 specifies that police and property owners are authorized to move any vehicle left unattended on a street, and is parked illegally, as to constitute a hazard or obstruction to the normal movement of traffic.
