It’s an offence to abandon a vehicle on a road or in public place, or to park an unregistered vehicle on a road (under Local Law No. 10 (Public Health) 1999).
Abandoned vehicles are a risk to our safety. They’re often left in dangerous places and in a poor state.
We investigate all vehicles reported as abandoned. We try to find the owner or driver and ask them to remove the vehicle. If we can’t find the owner, we will put a notice on the vehicle confirming that it will be removed within a certain time.
If an abandoned vehicle is not removed, the owner may be fined and we will impound the vehicle.
If a vehicle is abandoned in a risky or dangerous place, we may remove it immediately.
