Follow the link to the Operation Crackdown site to report an abandoned vehicle.

You will be asked to fill in a short online form which will take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

Information you will be asked for includes:

  • Details of the type of vehicle (car, van, motorbike etc),
  • Make, model and colour of the vehicle
  • The condition of the vehicle
  • The vehicle registration number (licence plate) if it has one
  • A picture, if possible – if you can take a digital picture of the vehicle, please use our image upload facility to send it to us in .jpg format no bigger than 500 kb.

Information about the Location:

  • Please give as much information as you can about the location - we will use this to find and inspect the vehicle.
  • Our online map will help you pinpoint the area - clicking on the map will automatically enter a map reference.
  • Please also add written details describing the road and any obstacles to reaching the vehicle.
Finally you will be asked for contact information about you - but this will only be used if the investigating official has any questions about the vehicle or location.
