In Hawaii, it is easier to dump your old car by the side of the road than have it legally disposed—an attitude that’s causing big headaches for the authorities. Every year, the state spends hundreds of thousands of tax payer’s money to tow away abandoned vehicles and there are still an overwhelming number of them rotting in the fields and among the trees.
Hawaii is full of transplants who are constantly moving on and off the islands. When people leave Hawaii for the mainland, they often leave their cars behind because it is economical that way. The proper procedure is to either sell the car or have it junked. But as David Morgan quips, “it’s easier to paddle the Molokai channel than deal with the Hawaii DMV.”
