I'd like to report a white Vauxhall van that has been parked in stony croft outside nos' 46 & 48. It has not moved for over 6 months, has a flat tyre (nearside front), and the MOT ran out on 8/8/2017.

  • What about the lack of valid MOT? According this case Pumbien v Vines

    (1995) The Times June 14 Queen's Bench Divisional Court

    A motor car parked on a road was being used on the road for the purposes of sections 47 and 143 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 even if it was totally immobilised and could only be moved by being dragged away, and, therefore, required both a valid MOT certificate and an insurance policy.

    The Court so held in dismissing an appeal by way of case stated by Andee Pumbien against his conviction of offences of using a motor vehicle on a road without either a valid test certificate or insurance policy contrary to sections 47(1) and 143(1) of the 1988 act.

    It is still a offence to have an vehicle with NO MOT parked on the road
