My car was wrecked and is in the impound lot. I don’t want it anymore. Can I just leave it there?
Yes, although it is the responsibility of the registered owner to pay all towing and storage fees in full prior to releasing ownership to the Impound Lot for disposal.
Unpaid charges will be referred to a collection agency.
