We will investigate reports of abandoned vehicles that are on public roads.
Vehicles are likely to be abandoned if at least one of the following applies:
- they have no keeper on the DVLA’s database and are untaxed - check vehicle tax online
- they’re stationary for a significant amount of time
- they’re significantly damaged, run down or unroadworthy - with flat tyres, wheels removed or broken windows
- they’re burned out
- they have number plates missing
If a vehicle is untaxed but shows no other signs of being abandoned, you can report it to DVLA
If you think the vehicle has been abandoned in Harlow, you can report it to us.
