CPD tagging abandoned vehicles

Back To Front Page

Chesterton Police officers began canvassing the town today for abandoned vehicles

They will continue the effort through Friday, Police Chief Dave Cincoski told the Town Council at its meeting Monday night.

Any abandoned vehicle found will be tagged and its owner will have 20 days to move it. If it is unmoved after 20 days, it will be towed.

An abandoned vehicle is one which is at least three model years old and

* Has been unmoved for 20 days or more,

* Or is inoperable,

* Or is covered by a tarp.

Officers will be tagging abandoned vehicles on private as well as on public property, Cincoski said.

And removing the tag from the vehicle will not save it from being towed after 20 days.
