We have had a car sitting outside our house for approx 6 months with no tax and in a very poor condition. I reported it to the councils abandoned vehicle website, no response, reported it again, still no response, so i thought id report it to the police, the response i got was that "the vehicle doesnt meet the criteria of being abandoned" .............. just hope they show as much leniancy if i ever go out, god forbid in an untaxed car!! Northants Police...Bottom of the national police league table, i wonder why??? maybe there is less paperwork persecuting motorists going 2 miles per hour over the speed limit!! Rant over

So what would the situation be if it caught fire by accident?

Or find someone that does banger racing - most will be happy to come pick it up.

Good point. Must pay more attention!
Did you sell him the rights to the name? Is he an imposter?

dont want it to catch fire, its too bloody close to out fence and house!

hopefully northants police will answer my email asking what constitutes abandoned.....apart from not moving in 6 months and no tax!

why dont you tell the Police you saw the car doing 34mph in a 30mph limit? They will have it banged up for months with a crime like that!

yeah, put a flyer around the 'camps', "Free car, only needs collecting"....actually, record it on tape in case they can't read.
