How Can I Find Out If My Car Has Been Towed?
www.opglaviic.com is a self-service website for the public and insurance companies attempting to locate cars towed within the City of Los Angeles, or a person may call their local police station and give the vehicle license plate number to the desk officer. The desk officer will run the status of the vehicle and will inform the person whether or not their vehicle has been impounded.
How Can I Get My Car Out Of Impound?
If a person has verified that his/her vehicle has been impounded, they must take proof of vehicle ownership and valid drivers license to the tow yard. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, Visa or Mastercard. NO CHECKS ARE ACCEPTED.
If a persons vehicle was impounded under a 30-day hold, they must wait until the 30-day period is over prior to requesting a release. After the 30-day period has passed, the registered owner must go to the Area auto detectives to obtain a release for the vehicle (releases are only given to the registered owner/s). If the registered owner does not have a valid California drivers license, he/she must bring along a person who possesses a valid California drivers license.
If a persons vehicle was impounded as a vehicle forfeiture, and the vehicle is owned by more than one person, the other owner (owner from whom the vehicle was not taken) should refer to the information contained in the Notice of Forfeiture Letter that they will receive by certified mail, to obtain a release.
