The Tararua District Council is highlighting the problem of abandoned vehicles being left on roadsides.

The Council said abandoned vehicles are more common than people realise, and are costing ratepayers money to remove them.

They are encouraging people to contact a scrap metal dealer to take old vehicles.

Vehicles left on local roads become the responsibility of the District Council, while vehicles left on main highways become the responsibility of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
