More than 2,300 abandoned vehicles have been removed from the streets of the Greek capital over the last year.

More specifically, since September 2019, 1,194 motorcycles/mopeds and 1,126 cars have been removed from the neighborhoods of Athens, freeing up pedestrian and parking space.
“We have already entered the process of closing a big wound that has plagued Athens for decades. The capital needs every inch of free and clean space,” said Athens Mayor Kostas Bakoyiannis.
