Abandoned or Inoperable Vehicle or Car - on the Street

The City of Stockton Municipal Code requires that all cars or vehicles must be operable and currently registered. Vehicles parked on the street need to be operable, registered, and moved every 72 hours. If a vehicle is not operable and registered, it must be placed out of public view and/or in an enclosed structure. If an inoperable, unregistered vehicle is observed by an Officer, it may be noticed or cited as a violation of the Code.


To report an abandoned car or other vehicle, please fill out the service request below. It is very important that you provide the license plate number and vehicle description (such as make, model, and color).


If a notice is received and the vehicle is operable, please contact the Stockton Police Department Traffic Division at (209) 937-8354.
