Fear The KCI Airport Auto Dumping Ground

Fox4 reports that nearly every part of this town is becoming more and more ratchet even as a BILLION DOLLAR KCI revamping awaits: KCI Airport confronts problem of cars abandoned by passengers

This seems more like an opportunity than a problem. Kansas City will complain about anything. Those cars could be re-purposed. Come on Kansas City... I dare you to get some balls and possess one creative idea. I double dare you.

The KC elite know it's the best way to dispose of a dead hooker. Isn't that right Mr Kemper?

What problem??? There are 22,000 spaces available at the airport, and right now about 20 cars abandoned. That's 0.0009% of the available spaces being taken up.

Folks, again.... this is another example of why we need a new airport to attract BIG EVENTS and SMART PEOPLE to KC.

A new airport will have robots canvassing the parking lot to identify and crush abandoned cars.

It's time we move into the future, or get left behind.

Folks, WDAF characterized it as a problem. I did not. It is just something interesting and unusual that occurs at a facility serving 10 million passengers with 22,000 spaces. For whatever reason, vehicles are sometimes abandoned and we deal with it. We inventory vehicles every evening. Forgot where you lost your car? We can tell you. Lost your ticket? We know how long you have been parked. Letters are sent to owners in fixed intervals. After a certain period of time the vehicles are towed to a central lot. Eventually they are towed to the City Lot and auctioned. They are re-purposed, in a way. This issue has no ties to other airport issues. Thanks Tony and your readers.

For sure: 20 spaces taken out of circulation in this ridiculously oversized and overbuilt hick-town airport is utterly insignificant.

Still, I'm happy to hear about this. Getting rid of an old clunker always is a problem these days ... even junk yards either don't want them or make you pay to dispose of them.

When my old heap finally gives its death rattle, I'll just drive it into a CK airport parking garage and take a cab home. My gift to the dim-bulb CK taxpayers, who have shown over and over again that they will put up with absolutely anything.
