DO you own this car?

Residents of Seabreeze Court, Slade Point, are frustrated that the damaged vehicle has been left in their street since a tow truck dropped it off about three weeks ago.

"A flat-bed tow truck backed up to our front yard and dropped a vehicle off, and I mean that literally, as it was just rolled off and left where it rolled," Yvonne Higgins said.

"The vehicle was left at a precarious angle against the gutter, sticking out into the court," she said.

"While it is not in our driveway or directly in front of anyone else's driveway, it requires a wider swing to get out now and it blocks your vision when reversing, so we cannot see what is behind the car.

"I am very worried that when I back out at some stage a child will run out and get hit."

Mrs Higgins said residents had contacted police and Mackay Regional Council and been told the vehicle was registered to someone in North Mackay.

"The police said that apart from being 'badly parked' they have no jurisdiction.

And the council tells us that the vehicle has a current registration and, therefore, is not abandoned, so we are left with a very real hazard that no-one will do anything about.

"It's a total mystery. Because it was left on our front doorstep everyone keeps coming to ask if it is our car," Mrs Higgins said.

A police spokesman confirmed the vehicle was parked legally and not committing an offence.
