How do I report an abandoned vehicle?
Call 3-1-1. Please be prepared to provide the location, description of the vehicle (color, make and model) and license plate number. If it’s in the public right of way, it will be handled by the Police Abandoned Vehicle Unit. If it’s in the private right of way, it will be handled and cited by Permits, Licenses and Inspections (PLI) [formerly BBI]. If the car is located in the public right of way it will usually be removed relatively quickly. Vehicles on private property often take longer to remove.
