Abandoned Vehicles

A vehicle is considered to be a waste management issue and abandoned if it meets the following criteria:

  • the vehicle structure/glass has been damaged by vandalism as opposed to damage caused by a road traffic accident
  • the vehicle has unsecured doors, boot open
  • the vehicle has been partially or fully burnt out

A car is NOT abandoned if it does not meet the above criteria.
Untaxed vehicles or those declared as SORN on a public road should be referred to the Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) for enforcement.
Vehicles causing a traffic management issue such as an obstruction or nuisance should be reported to Police Scotland on 101.
