Abandoned vehicles and illegal parking

Abandoned vehicles

If a vehicle is left contravening a law or is abandoned it may be removed. If the owner can be found we will seek to have the vehicle removed within a reasonable time frame.  Alternatively, the Local Government Act 1999 sets out the process we must follow to remove a vehicle.

Please note that if a vehicle is in a dangerous position, council or SA Police may impound or relocate the vehicle immediately.

Unregistered vehicles should be reported to SA Police on 13 14 44.
