Council Enforcing Against Abandoned Vehicles

 

Two individuals have been ordered to pay over £1,600 after enforcement action by Bedford Borough Council.

 

On 10th October, Mr Tino Tenda Kawome of Baker Way, Witham and Mr Amardeep Sanghera of Arkwright Road, Irchester were each found guilty of abandoning their vehicles in Bedford.

 

Following Council officers inspection of the abandoned vehicles on Cardington Road and Clapham Road respectively the tax and MOT on both vehicles were found to be out of date, with the tax on Mr Kawome’s car having expired in October 2015. Both men were sent letters asking that their vehicles be removed.

 

Following their failure to act Luton Magistrates Court imposed a fine of £440 on Mr Kawome and ordered him to pay £727.02 in costs and a £45 victim surcharge, while Mr Sanghera was fined £120 and also ordered to pay £300 in costs and a £30 victim surcharge.

 

Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for the Environment said: “Abandoned vehicles are not just a nuisance but can represent a danger to road users, as they are often poorly maintained. We will continue to enforce against abandoned vehicles on our roads, in keeping with our zero tolerance approach to environmental crimes.”
