Abandoned cars can be disruptive to the overall quality of a neighborhood. The Fresno Police Department realizes the importance of removing abandoned vehicles promptly, and within the specifications of law.

Vehicles are considered abandoned when left on the street for 72 hours or longer. Sometimes the signs of abandonment are obvious and can include a heavy layer of dust, spider webs around the wheels, expired registration, flat tires, and even missing major engine components.

To report an abandoned vehicle, please call 621-2085. Please be prepared to provide the following information.

  • Make and Model of vehicle
  • Color of the vehicle
  • License plate information
  • Street address where the vehicle is and the major cross street
