This paper examines the importation of second handed vehicles and their effects on Cameroon’s economy and environment. Although the legal environment has been unfavorable towards the importation of second handed vehicles in Cameroon, the quantity of used vehicles being imported in to Cameroon is still alarming. In recent years, Cameroon can even be considered a dumping ground for European used and weary vehicles. This study made used of semi-constructed questionnaires, interviews, field observations and the review of empirical literature. The findings showed that Cameroonians prefer to import used vehicles over new ones, which explains why over 80% of vehicles used in the country are second handed or used vehicles. The study also identifies the alarming effects of second handed vehicles on the economy and on the environment of Cameroon. We recommend amongst other things that the government could subsidize the cost of importing new vehicles in such a way that it could be preferred over used vehicles. If the price of importing a new vehicle is the same or just a little higher than that of importing a second handed vehicle, then the importation of second handed vehicles is going to drop significantly. The effects on the economy and the environment will also reduce in consequence.
