Vehicle Abatement in the City of Dublin includes the removal of abandoned vehicles from City streets. The City's code enforcement officer responds to requests to remove abandoned vehicles from private property.
If you believe that a vehicle is abandoned and should be removed from City streets, contact the Vehicle Abatement Hotline at (925) 452-2121. Be prepared to provide the following information:
- location of the vehicle
- type and color of the vehicle
- license plate number
Within a couple days of receiving an abandoned vehicle tip, an officer will mark the vehicle as abandoned with an orange warning sticker. 72 hours after the vehicle is marked as abandoned, the officer will return to determine if the vehicle has been moved. If the vehicle has not been moved, the vehicle will be towed.
The City maintains a rotating list of multiple local towing companies; if you would like to apply for your towing company to be added to the rotating list, please contact the Traffic Sergeant via the Dublin Police Services Business Office.
If your vehicle has been towed and you would like to retrieve it, please visit the Vehicle Releases page for further assistance.
