Fixed Penalty Notices for sale of vehicles on a road

If you advertise 2 or more vehicles for sale on a road within 500 metres of each other you're committing an offence under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 and could be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN).

Report the sale of vehicles on a road

We proactively monitor through patrols, but you can also report improper sale of vehicles on a road to our Neighbourhood Enforcement Team by providing information such as:

  • the date and time that you witnessed the offence
  • the location where you witnessed the offence
  • description of persons selling vehicles
  • address of persons selling vehicles
  • details of vehicle(s) being sold, including vehicle registration(s)
  • your name and contact details (which will remain confidential)

We'll issue an FPN for repairing of vehicles on a road if you're able to provide a full witness statement that contains sufficient evidence to identify the offender and demonstrate a prosecutable offence has taken place.
