Special Vehicle Enforcement Hotline To Begin In Detroit

Detroit, MI - The Detroit Municipal Parking Department has set up a special hotline for citizens to call and report abandoned vehicles and request special enforcement for illegally parked vehicles.

Citizens are urged to call (313) 221-2558. Enforcement officers will respond within 30 minutes in most cases.

A vehicle is deemed abandoned (Division 4 Section 55-6-85 of the City Code) if: The vehicle is on a public street, highway, alley or public place for 48 continuous hours or more and appears to be unclaimed, discarded or deserted.

A vehicle has been on private property for 48 continuous hours or more without the consent of the owner or lessee of the property, or for 48 continuous hours or more after the consent of the owner has been revoked.

“This is a win-win situation for our citizens and the City as we work together to make a safer Detroit,” said Gary Brown, Chief Operating Officer. “We are focused on eliminating the hazards associated with abandoned and illegally parked vehicles left on our streets.”
