Impounded Vehicles

“Impoundment” means the immobilization of a vehicle by use of an immobilization device or the towing of a vehicle to a place of storage. (Salt Lake City Ordinance 12.96.010)

When inquiring about an impounded vehicle, please have your vehicle license plate number or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) ready.

To reduce the possibility of your vehicle being towed, read street signage carefully and follow City parking ordinances 12.56.520 and 12.56.525 (pdf) regarding using streets for storage.
*Notice – Salt Lake City’s Compliance Division no longer hosts vehicle auctions or manages the impound lot.*
