Abandoned Vehicle

If a car or motorcycle has been parked in the same spot for 30 days or more, its probably been abandoned.  Take down the license plate, make and model of the car.  Then call 311, our office or report it on-line.

A vehicle can be classified as abandoned if it meets one or more of the following criteria:

  • On a public way in a state of disrepair as to be incapable of being driven in its present condition.
  • Has not been moved or used for more than seven consecutive days and is apparently deserted.
  • Has been left on the public way without state registration or a temporary state registration placard for two or more days.
  • Is a hazardous dilapidated vehicle left in full view of the general public, whether on public or private property.

The abandoned vehicles are taken to auto pound 3S or 3N where they are -- if not redeemed by the owners -- sold for scrap. Please call 311 to locate your car.
