Section 14-307 Impoundment of vehicles for unpaid parking tickets.

    (a)    A vehicle may be impounded if there are four (4) or more parking tickets issued against the vehicle which remain unpaid more than fifteen (15) days after issuance. If a parking ticket is contested, it shall not be counted as an unpaid ticket unless it remains unpaid after the vehicle has been finally adjudged to have been illegally parked.

    (b)    A vehicle shall not be impounded for unpaid parking tickets unless notice of eligibility for towing and impoundment has been affixed to the vehicle at least twenty-four (24) hours before the vehicle is towed.  The notice shall state that the vehicle is eligible for towing and impoundment for unpaid parking tickets and shall include contact information for paying or contesting the parking tickets and for requesting a hearing on whether the vehicle is eligible for impoundment.

    (c)    No vehicle shall be impounded under this section unless the vehicle is on a public street or in a public parking lot.
