 363. Mr. G. Mitchell Information on Gay Mitchell Zoom on Gay Mitchell  asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform Information on Michael McDowell Zoom on Michael McDowell  the measures which are available to a person (details supplied) to have a car removed from blocking the entrance to their home; if he has legislative proposals to remedy the situation; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [24386/02]

Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. McDowell): Information on Michael McDowell Zoom on Michael McDowell Current legislative provisions relating to the prohibition on unlawfully parked vehicles and associated matters are contained in the Road Traffic (Traffic and Parking) Regulations, 1977, Road Traffic Acts, 1961-02, and Road Traffic (Removal, Storage and Disposal of Vehicles) Regulations, 1983-88. Road traffic legislation and any changes thereon are the responsibility of my colleague, the Minister for Transport.

I am informed by the Garda authorities that the vehicle in question, which was partially blocking the driveway of the person concerned, has been removed by the owner. I understand that the difficulties encountered by the Garda Síochána in tracing the owner of the vehicle were due to the fact that the vehicle had undergone many changes of ownership in recent months.
