The abatement of abandoned vehicles is regulated by the City's Municipal Code and falls under the responsibility of the Traffic Division. To report an abandoned vehicle, please call 510-577-2740. To expedite the investigation into your complaint, please try to have the following information available:
The exact address where the vehicle is parked (i.e., in front of 1234 ABC Street)
The license plate number of the vehicle (please indicate if it is not a California license plate)
The color, make, model, and type of vehicle
Approximately how long the vehicle has been parked in this location
Once the complaint is received, a complaint card will be completed containing the vehicle's information. After 72 hours, staff has the authority to have it towed if the vehicle has not moved.
