Frequently Asked Questions

My car was stolen and towed to the impound lot and I do not want it anymore. Can I just leave it there?

Yes. "Junk Left to City" (JLTC) is a situation in which the owner no longer wants his/her vehicle and decides that they would like to turn the title and keys for the vehicle over to the city. No fees will be assessed to you for the impoundment of the vehicle if you junk it to the city. But you must still pay any and all tickets on the vehicle with the violations bureau.


Can I get my personal property out of my car before I leave it there?

No. "Junk Left to City" (JLTC) does not give the owner permission to remove personal property. All the impound fees must be paid in full before personal property can be removed.


Can I get my vehicle towed out if I don't have Insurance?

Yes, it must be hauled out by a licensed tow company, our on a flatbed trailer.


Can I get my vehicle out of impound if I don't have a valid Driver's license?

Yes, but you must have 1 valid driver with you (that drove you here) and get the vehicle towed out or have 2 valid drivers with you 1 driver to bring you here and 1 to drive your vehicle out of impound.
