The Police arrived unannounced on Saturday (and returned, Sunday) checking and removing abandoned and illegal cars from Condado de Alhama. We understand that this is the first of several regular visits they intend to make
Many cars/quads/bikes were removed from Condado by the Police. This is ongoing.
Non-Spanish cars must be legal in the country of origin. For UK cars this means a valid MOT, Tax and insurance all of which the Police can check. UK cars with SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) are not legal to drive in Spain either.
Similar regulations obviously apply to cars from other countries.
Spanish registered cars which are not legal may similarly be impounded.
