The Durham Police Department can only tow abandoned vehicles that are on the public streets or highways of our city. If the vehicle is a danger to motorists (i.e. left in the roadway) then we can tow it immediately. If it is parked out of the travel lane, we have to tag the car and send the owner a notice to move the car. If it is not moved in 7 days, we will then tow it.
