When looking for an abandoned vehicle, officers will look for vehicles that are not moved regularly or not at all.
Most abandoned vehicles will:
- Have flat tires, no tires, or be up on jacks.
- Have leaves, trash, or snow all around it indicating that it hasn't been moved in awhile.
- Inoperable vehicles.
- Expired plates.
Abandoned vehicles often end up being stolen vehicles, or are abandoned because they are going to be repossessed and the previous owners do not want the company to find the car.
