If you’re still taking a chance running in to grab a coffee or drop off something real quick even with the crackdown on drivers parking in live lanes during rush hour downtown you may want to take note of this info.
Toronto Police have released this info on what to do if your car is towed…
Is your car missing? Have you been towed?
If your car is not where you last parked it, it may not necessarily be stolen. Vehicles are impounded and relocated at all times for various reasons. If your car has been moved, follow these steps:
-Call the Toronto Police Service (416) 808-2222 and ask for dispatch.
-Please have your vehicle plate number and your vehicles last location ready.
-Dispatch will advise you if your car has been impounded or relocated. Once you have determined that your vehicle has been impounded, call the appropriate
towing company immediately to make arrangements to retrieve it. Remember that storage fees continue to accrue, so attend to your vehicle as quickly as possible.
The storage day is 24 hours from the time the vehicle arrives at the pound. Twenty-five per cent of the 24-hour storage fee is chargeable for each of the first four hours, which shall include any part of an hour. One hour is payable as soon as the vehicle arrives at the pound.
The hourly rate and minimum rate will reapply at the conclusion of each 24-hour period. Here are how the city’s police divisions break down by towing district:
1 District = Divisions 11, 12, 13, 14, and 53 – west of Yonge Street, north of Bloor Street West and south of Lawrence Avenue West.
2 District = Divisions 22, 23.
3 District = Divisions 31, 32, 33, and 53 – east of Yonge Street, north of Bloor Street East and south of Lawrence Avenue East.
4 District = Divisions 41, 42, 43, 54.
