Whom do I call to report a possible abandoned vehicle on my street?
California state law states that vehicles parked on the street over 72 hours may be considered abandoned vehicles. Please contact Orange County Sheriff’s Dispatch at 949-770-6011 to report the location and description of the vehicle. Parking control staff will come out and check to make sure the vehicle is not stolen, confirm it is properly registered, and mark the vehicle's tire. The vehicle can be cited 72 hours after it is marked and ultimately towed away at the owner's expense. For abandoned vehicle abatement purposes, the vehicle will be monitored for 10 days prior to being towed.
