Abandoned Vehicles are a nuisance as well as an eyesore. Don’t let abandoned vehicles ruin the look of your neighborhood.
Under Pennsylvania’s motor vehicle laws, a vehicle is considered abandoned if:
- left on a highway or public property in inoperable condition for 48 hours or longer
- left illegally on a highway or public property
- left on highway or public property for 48 hours or longer and does not have valid license plate, inspection sticker, or VIN number
- left on private property without owner’s consent for 48 hours or longer
If you have a complaint regarding an abandoned vehicle, contact us or call 215-884-2700.
A police officer will respond and evaluate the situation. If the vehicle can be verified as abandoned, it will be posted with an orange notification sticker. If the owner has not removed the vehicle after seven days it will be towed away.
