Abandoned vehicles

A vehicle may be considered abandoned if:

  • It does not have or doesn’t appear to have an owner
  • It has not moved location for a long period of time
  • It does not display a current tax disc (although this does not necessarily indicate that a vehicle is abandoned)
  • It is open and a target for vandalism or in such a state it represents a danger to the public.
