EUSCHER“How long can I keep my car parked on the street before it has to move?”

The Code states that a vehicle cannot sit on a public street, without moving, for more than 72 hours (LOC 32.06.076).  You must move your vehicle either one city block or 200 feet, whichever is less.  If the vehicle remains in the same spot without moving after five days, the vehicle will be towed and the registered owner will be responsible for tow and release fees.
