There were 84 abandoned car complaints in Carlow up to September of this year and the behaviour has become a serious issue. 

Abandoned cars were previously recorded under litter but the "extent of the issue" has warranted a separate category in Carlow County Council's monthly environmental report. 

Of the 84 complaints received by the local authority, 83 of these were investigated with 49 of the cases still active and a further 35 resolved.
