Council amends abandoned vehicle code

Posted: Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Globe The Globe Council received an amendment to the City Code from City Attorney William Sims that clarifies what constitutes an abandoned vehicle.

When the City Code was amended a few years ago, the existing language allowed police to enforce the code only if a vehicle was parked on a sidewalk. The amended section allows city police to enforce the abandoned vehicle section to any vehicle parked on City property and all right of ways.

Also clarified were the reasons for a vehicle to be labeled abandoned. They are:

the vehicle cannot be started with its own battery; the vehicle is on blocks or similar devices; the vehicle has a deflated tire or tires; a wheel or tire has been removed on the vehicle; the vehicle does not have a current, fully paid registration from the State of Arizona; or it is a partially or wholly dismantled vehicle.
