Is the vehicle parked on the public street?

Roseville's Municipal Code prohibits storing vehicles--cars, trucks, trailers, or RVs--on the public street for longer than 72 hours without moving them. The process for requesting removal of an abandoned vehicle may require a few weeks. Volunteers or staff first check and mark the vehicle. They return at least three days later to see if the vehicle has been moved. If it has not been moved, they can post a citation on the vehicle.

Is the vehicle on your private property?
If you are a business owner or property manager and you own a parking lot, it is your right and responsibility to have abandoned vehicles removed. However, you must properly post your property with signage advising people that unauthorized vehicles will be towed. For more information and signage requirements, please call the police department's community service division at (916)774-5050.

Is the vehicle on someone else's private property?
Roseville's Municipal Code prohibits the storing of unsightly (some might even say "ugly") vehicles on private property if they can be seen from the public right of way (for example, if the unsightly vehicle can be seen by someone standing on the sidewalk). What is "unsightly"? Vehicles that have been partially dismantled, have major parts such as the wheels or the engine removed, or are otherwise obviously inoperable, are considered "unsightly", and must be stored out of public sight. To report such a nuisance vehicle on private property, please submit an online submission.
