Thomas Township

1. On Public Property

A vehicle is considered abandoned if it is parked continuously at or in one spot for 48 hours or more.  If you have a complaint of a car parked for 48 hours or more in front of your house, place of business or anywhere else on a public street, call the Police Department at 781-1300 during business hours or 797-4580 after hours.

The police will need the following information about the car:

  1. Specific location
  2. License plate number, if it has one
  3. Year, make, model and color of vehicle

An officer will investigate your complaint and tag the vehicle as abandoned.  After an additional 48 hours the vehicle will be impounded and towed to the nearest storage lot.  Tow and impound fees will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner.

2. On Private Property Open to the Public

Vehicle/s parked on private property open to the public may be removed as abandoned by the property owner at any time.  Such removal will be at the expense of the property owner.  To avoid this expense, it is highly recommended that the Police Department be called so the vehicle can be tagged as abandoned under township ordinance and removed at the vehicle owner’s expense.
