Illegal Car Repairs Riverdale Road

Reported anonymously at 13:03, Sat 17 August 2019

Walked up Riverdale Road yesterday and it was like a junk yard with bonnets open and cars being worked on. Also cars being left jacked up outside over night which is a serious health and safety breach. I live on Saunders Road and have the same issue on my side of the road, last time I checked this practice is actually illegal. Is it illegal to fix cars on the road? It is during the course of a business it is for gain or reward it causes annoyance to people in the vicinity The only exception is that if the repairs are carried out following an accident or break down where it was necessary to do the repairs on the spot or within 72 hours. If it is a one off repair then this is not likely to breach the law but anyone who repeatedly repairs vehicles on the road is likely to commit an offence. So why has this been going on for so long?
