CARS that are improperly registered are causing parking problems for locals.

Mr Smith claimed cars without tax and MOT lingering on Gibson Road in High Wycombe are “inconveniencing” locals as parking is already “absolutely impossible”.

He reported three cars to Bucks Council, a silver Hyundai (no tax), a yellow Skoda (no MOT), and a black BMW (no tax or MOT).

Mr Smith claimed the BMW had been reported by “multiple” residents, and that Bucks Council told him it still has a registered owner so “there is nothing to be done”.

Bucks Council said however it had reported those with lapsed tax or MOT, and that the BMW is being looked at as a potential abandoned car.

“The cars are inconveniencing local residents as parking is absolutely impossible on Gibson Road as it is,” said Mr Smith.

“With all these cars being parked and not moving, it’s making life difficult for local residents and causing people to park dangerously.

“The yellow pickup has been parked there with no MOT for a year. The Hyundai is untaxed.

“The black BMW has been reported to the council by multiple residents, but the council states that as the car has a registered owner there is nothing to be done, so clearly Bucks Council is endorsing parking with no MOT, tax and insurance.

“There is constantly untaxed vehicles without MOT moving around Gibson Road and surrounding areas.”

Cllr Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment said: “We have checked the details against the DVLA website which shows two of the vehicles have either lapsed tax or MOT – the council will report these to other agencies for their attention and we will monitor the situation as necessary.

“One of the vehicles has neither tax or a valid MOT and is currently being monitored as a potential abandoned vehicle.

“We would encourage residents who suspect a vehicle is abandoned to check the licence plate on the DLVA website ( then if it shows has having no valid tax or MOT, please report to us as abandoned via FixMyStreet.”
