Abandoned Vehicle Program

County Code Chapter 9.57


The Sheriff's Office administers the Abandoned Vehicle Abatement Program to respond to complaints of abandoned vehicles and those parked on streets for more than 72 hours in the unincorporated areas of the county.

Community Service Officers verify violations, mark vehicles, post ten-day notices of intent to remove, and arrange tows for improperly parked, abandoned, wrecked, dismantled or inoperative cars, trucks, RVs and trailers.

Report an abandoned vehicle online or call (831) 454-7602. Be prepared to report the following information about the vehicle you are reporting:

    • Location
    • Color
    • Make and model
    • License plate number
    • How long it has been since it was last moved, if known
