How to report an abandoned vehicle
Although an abandoned vehicle is a nuisance, a nuisance vehicle is not always abandoned. The council is only able to deal with abandoned vehicles.
What is a nuisance vehicle?
Nuisance vehicles are vehicles which are:
- poorly parked
- causing an obstruction
- involved in residential parking disputes
- broken down
What is an abandoned vehicle?
Here are some pointers to help you identify an abandoned vehicle:
- has been in the same area for a considerable length of time
- if vehicle is not drivable
- if vehicle is damaged or vandalised
- if the vehicle is untaxed (this should not be the sole consideration)
- if there is mould or grass growing on the windows or door seals - evidence that the vehicle has not moved for some time
- attempts have been made to hide its identity
- the location suggests its been abandoned
- if the tyres are flat
- if the vehicle is being used to store items
Abandoned vehicles are unsightly and can lead to crime through the cars being vandalised and burnt-out. Cars being burnt-out pose a danger to the public from fire and explosion hazards. A burnt-out car continues to be dangerous and should not be approached. Burnt out vehicles also have a negative affect on the environment due to dangerous fluids leaking into waterways etc.
