Vehicle Towing and Impoundment

PPA tows illegally parked vehicles from designated Tow Zones in order
to improve traffic flow and eliminate hazardous conditions.

Vehicles are not released until the driver presents certification of proper
registration, insurance and driver’s license. You must also pay the total
amount due, including all outstanding tickets, fees, fines and penalties,
before you can take possession of your vehicle. Fees are detailed in the
table below.

Vehicles impounded through the Live Stop program must also satisfy all
outstanding tickets at the Traffic Court.

Towed vehicles are taken to one of PPA’s Impoundment Lots. For street addresses
and phone numbers, please see our FAQ.

Vehicles that are not claimed within 21 days are sold at public auction.
