How do I report an abandoned vehicle?
In San José, it is illegal to leave a vehicle parked for more than 72 consecutive hours on a public street without it being driven at least 1/10th of a mile. When a vehicle is reported or observed to be abandoned or stored, a courtesy tow warning notice is typically placed on it, so that the vehicle owner has the opportunity to correct the violation. While the goal is for the vehicle to be moved through voluntary compliance, vehicles remaining in violation may be subject to a citation and/or towed.

In order to report abandoned vehicles, please go to the My San Jose's main page and click on the abandoned vehicle icon to begin.

Please note: You will need to set up an account in order to report abandoned vehicles using our website.
