  • 4 months no action , I think the relevent legislation is section 47 of the 1988 RTA. Section 47 of Road Traffic Act 1998 uses the teminology "uses on a road at any time, or causes or permits to be so used" ... and I believe that "using" doesn't just mean driving, so parking it on a public is (I think) the same as driving it. no one can drive over it or park there as the scrap is just abandoned for the past 4 months , so its abandoned as it has not moved in months , they have had more than reasonable time to get it mot , or sort it out , but nothing except flat tyres and rubbish build up under it

  • Bristol.gov.uk you can drive in a bus lane and get a £30 fine inside 5-7 days , you can repeatedly report a abandoned car been broken down for 5 months , Nothing ? Just shows they only care about Money £££ we just have not got a chance as there is no money to be made here , just against the law , but hey , they turn a blind eye to that ? What a waste of time this site seems to be
