(A)   Junked vehicles which are located in any place where they are visible from a public place or public right-of-way are detrimental to the safety and welfare of the general public, tend to reduce the value of private property, to invite vandalism, to create fire hazards, to constitute an attractive nuisance creating a hazard to the health and safety of minors, and are detrimental to the economic welfare of the city by producing urban blight which is adverse to the maintenance and continuing development of the city, and such vehicles are, therefore, declared to be public nuisances.
   (B)   The Department of Public Safety is hereby authorized to abate and remove the junked vehicles or parts thereof, as public nuisances, from private property, public property or public right-of-way upon the terms and conditions of this chapter.
