A number of abounded vehicles have been reported and removed by the Garda.
To report an abandoned vehicle:
Report the vehicle to Watercourse road Garda station (021) 455 8260.
Next report the vehicle to Cork City council Roads & Transportation (Asset management department) on (021)4924189/ (021)4924758.
The Road Traffic (Removal, Storage and Disposal of Vehicles) Regulations 1983–1998 give power to local authorities to tow away vehicles that have been abandoned or illegally parked on a public road.
What should follow is an inspection by Cork city officials who will contact the current owner. If not removed after 14 days the vehicle is towed and the owner will be charged €127 for costs incurred.
