There are rules and regulations concerning abandoned or hazardous vehicles, the private sale of vehicles on the roadside and vehicles that have been impounded and subsequently put up for auction.

Abandoned or Hazardous Vehicles

  • An abandoned vehicle includes an unregistered vehicle parked on a local government controlled area (footpath) or road, or a hazardous vehicle (currently registered or unregistered) that has been left on a road or footpath in a way that creates a risk.
  • If it has been established that a vehicle is abandoned or hazardous, Ipswich City Council will take steps to remove the vehicle from the road by towing. It is an offence and a contravention of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 to park an unregistered vehicle on the road or footpath.
