[ARCHIVED] See an Abandoned Vehicle? Report it to Code Compliance

Did you know the County has an Abandoned Vehicle Abatement (AVA) program? The purpose of this program is to remove abandoned vehicles from public right of ways. This program is for vehicles that have been abandoned in the same location for more than 72 hours.

How do I report an abandoned vehicle?

To report an abandoned vehicle, call our 24-hour AVA Hotline at (530) 470-2750. You may also submit a report online through Code Compliance's website.

What happens once I report an abandoned vehicle?

Once the public makes a report of an abandoned vehicle, the Code Compliance staff strives to tag a vehicle within three business days. Once tagged, the last registered owner is notified by mail as prescribed in the California Vehicle Code. After a waiting a period of not less than 10 days, the vehicle may be towed. The California Vehicle Code provides for immediate towing of vehicles that meet specific health and safety risks.

Who pays for this?

The AVA program is funded by money collected through a yearly fee of one dollar with each vehicle registration. In the past 10 years, almost 6,000 vehicles have been abated in Nevada County. To report an abandoned vehicle within city jurisdiction, contact the Town of Truckee (530) 582-7830, Nevada City (530) 265-7880, or City of Grass Valley (530) 274-4600.

If you have questions or comments please feel free to leave a message on the AVA Hotline at (530) 470-2750, or contact the Code Compliance Division at (530) 265-1222, option 4.
