On-street vehicle sales and repairs

It is an offence to offer a vehicle for sale for business purposes on the road in Cambridge.

It is also an offence to repair vehicles in the street as part of the running of a vehicle-repair business, or for an individual to repair their own vehicle in the street if doing so gives reasonable cause for annoyance to their neighbours.

Roadside-assistance organisations or mechanics repairing broken-down vehicles at the roadside are exempt as long as the work is completed within 72 hours.

If you suspect either of these offences may be taking place, please report the details to us.
