Impounded Vehicles

From time to time, and for varying reasons, our Community Rangers impound abandoned vehicles.

To recover your vehicle should this occur, you will need to pay an impound fee and daily storage fees. These must be paid in full prior to the release of the vehicle.

Vehicles that are not recovered within the specified time frame (7 days for wrecks, 3 months for all other vehicles) are deemed to be abandoned and are put up for sale via tender within the next round of advertising.

Vehicles currently impounded are as follows:
