Report Abandoned Vehicle
Did you notice a vehicle that looks abandoned? Reporting an abandoned vehicle online is quick and easy. Once submitted, a 311 customer service agent will log your concern. A Traffic Control Agent will be sent out to determine whether the vehicle is in violation and chalk the vehicle’s tires, and then return in 72 hours to verify that the vehicle has not moved. Once the issue has been addressed, you will be notified of the results.
