Towed Vehicles

Depending on where you parked your vehicle, it may have been towed for several reasons.

Parking on Private Property

Snow Removal on Streets


If you parked on the street in the City of Traverse city November 16th-April 14th, it may have been towed for snow removal reasons. The Traverse City website states: "Please remember that from November 16 through the following April 14 of each year, vehicles found parked on any street or alley between the hours of 3 - 6 a.m. may be towed away at the owner’s expense."


Snow Removal on Streets Outside of City Limits
