Mowing the Lawn on Bank-Owned Properties?

One of the visible impacts of the foreclosure crisis is unkempt lawns. Although banks are supposed to take care of their vacant homes, that doesn’t always happen right away, so home owners surrounding the property are left with a dilemma of what to do. 

If the lawn or vacant lot next door to you looked like this, what would you do about it? What sort of impression do you think a situation like this leaves on neighborhood visitors? I’d love to hear what you think.
