Abandoned, untaxed or nuisance vehicles should be reported to ELVIS - the End of Life Vehicle Impound Scheme, a joint operation between Northamptonshire's Arson Task Force, Northamptonshire Police and all councils in Northamptonshire.
An abandoned vehicle is one which has not been moved or attended to for a long time. There may be visible damage to suggest a crash or signs the vehicle has been stolen, such as:
- significant damage
- it's run-down or unroadworthy, including being rusted
- missing or suspicious number plates
- broken windows, flat tyres
- has a lot of rubbish inside it
- broken or loose ignition
- broken steering column
When you report a vehicle you need the registration number, make and model, colour, location and the condition of the vehicle.
