After police were told about a car that had been egged overnight, April 13 to 14 on Allen O’Neill Drive, they checked the neighborhood and found three others.
The owner of a 2015 Kia Optima contacted police, who notified the other car owners. None of the damage appeared to be permanent.
Various Web sites have advice about cleaning eggs from cars. Eggs can damage car paint, making it look foggy or faded, according to an article in the Austin American-Statesman. If the egg goop has dried up, the situation can be worse, since cleaning dry egg remains can damage the paint, as the Your Mechanic website reports.
Cleaning eggs from the sides of houses or other buildings can be even more expensive.
This incident was the second one recently reported on Allen O’Neill Drive. The other involved boys 7 and 9 years old and was reported the day before.
