A CRACKDOWN against people who use Wirral’s
highways as a “showroom” to sell cars has been
pledged by highways chief Cllr Harry Smith. Councillor Smith condemned the practice as “anti-
social, unacceptable, illegal and probably
dangerous.” He said perpetrators would be dealt with by
strong enforcement action. He added: “We have stamped it out in a number
of places and I would encourage the public to act
as the council’s eyes and ears to help us identify
where this is taking place. “The more we can eradicate this practice the
better it will be for legitimate car dealers who
pay their rates.” New Brighton Cllr Pat Hackett ordered an
investigation by the highways department after
being approached by people from
neighbourhoods affected by the problem. One Wallasey resident, who asked not to named,
said she had been shocked by the growth in
“littering” of the town’s streets by private cars
for Sale. She complained that the cars were narrowing
side streets and stopping people from parking to
shop in their local area. The resident identified nearly 30 incidents to Cllr
Hackett across North Wirral at Wallasey, Moreton
and Leasowe. She said: “When I, and others, have been
intimidated on our doorsteps by people selling
their cars, the there is even more motivation to
stop it. “Some people have run businesses this way for
years. ”It is not good for Wallasey, not good for Wirral.
It is giving out all the wrong signals.” Councillor Hackett said: “Many concerned
residents have contacted me and we can assure
those neighbourhoods and areas affected that
we are doing all in our power to make sure this
littering of our roads – which has seen a huge
increase over the years – will be dealt with in the appropriate manner.”

So let me get this right, it will now be somebodies job to:

Identify cars for Sale
Contact the owners
See how many cars they own
See if any of the others are for Sale
See how many they have sold this year

The cars already have to have tax/MoT and now Insurance to be parked on the road, and now you could be harrassed for trying to sell your own car.

What if you are someone who likes to change their car a lot, what if you are a big family with a lot of cars, who is saying that tax isn't being paid on thesae earnings anyway.

It's just another "I need to justify my job" councillor who has found a topic to shout out about that will require thousands to implement, wont work, will have minimal impact if it does and avoids doing any real work.

Is it really enforceable? If its taxed, mot'd, insured and parked in a legitimate place, I can't see what they can do about it.

If any of the above conditions aren't met then that's another issue altogether and nothing to do with selling cars.

Apparently so ...

"Under the provisions of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 (CNEA) it is now an offence to expose or advertise for Sale two or more motor vehicles parked on a road or roads within 500 metres of each other "

Are there any "blackspots" where there are lots of cars for Sale? Can anyone point me to any? Can't say I have noticed any. I do see the occasional car on main roads with a for Sale sign in the window, but they generally seem to be considerately parked.
