Abandoned Vehicles

Abandoned vehical

An abandoned vehicle is one that has not been moved or attended to in a long time. It may cause a nuisance by obstructing roads or access and may also be an eye sore to those living near it.

There may be obvious signs of damage suggesting the vehicle has been involved in a crash or has been stolen such as:

  • significant damage
  • run-down or unroadworthy including being rusted
  • missing or suspicious number plates
  • broken window, flat tyres
  • has a lot of rubbish inside
  • broken or loose ignition
  • broken steering column

If you need to report an abandoned vehicle that you believe could be stolen, submit an online report to Thames Valley Police or call the police non-emergency number 101.

Any other concern about an abandoned vehicle should be reported to your local council.
