  • Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately Northamptonshire Highways do not have the powers to take any action against vehicles parking on the public highway or obstructing dropped kerbing, private driveways, garages etc. However, we do appreciate that there are areas in residential communities, where parking is at a premium and people endeavour to maximise the available parking spaces by deliberately or inadvertently parking across part or the whole where dropped kerbing has been put in place. We normally would recommend that initially you may wish to inform the owners of the offending vehicles, if known, and explain the concern that their parking is causing. If this suggestion is not practicable or proves ineffective and parking issues continue at this location, then the best way forward would then be for you to contact Northamptonshire Police. Parking a vehicle inappropriately where it is deemed not possible for drivers to safely manoeuvre, pedestrians to pass unhindered along the footway or that access to public or private property is impeded, should be reported to Northamptonshire Police‚Äôs Safer Community Team on 101 or via the Northamptonshire Police website. In addition to this, if any particular vehicle is proven to have no road tax (members of the public can check if a vehicle is taxed and has a valid MOT on the DVLA website, www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax) or the vehicle has not moved for some time and appears to have no owner, then this would also be an police enforcement issue and can be processed as an abandoned vehicle. To report an abandoned vehicle please contact ELVIS (End of Life Vehicle Impound Scheme) on 08456 121 999, or email: elvis.recovery@northants.police.uk
