Vehicles, Machinery or Equipment in the Road

Nuisance may be caused by noise from vehicles eg. car alarms, noisy car repairs, car radios and parked refrigerator vehicles.

Where a nuisance exists officers may serve an Abatement Notice on the person responsible for causing the noise.
If the vehicle, machinery or equipment (VME) is unattended then the officer may affix the notice directly to the VME. The officer must then spend one hour trying to trace the person responsible to serve a copy of the notice on them.

If they cannot be traced then the officer may take action to abate the nuisance including gaining entry into a vehicle, and towing away if necessary.

Contact us if you have a complaint regarding this.
