Your car can be towed and “impounded” for a number of reasons:

  • If you park illegally, or somewhere for too long
  • If you park on the wrong side of the street during a snow emergency
  • if you have a lot of unpaid tickets
  • if your car breaks down and you don’t move it for a while

If this happens, you may be able to get your things out of your car even if you can’t pay to get your car right now.
