Towing Vehicles for a Special Event


For a special event using a street as part of the event venue, it is often necessary to make sure vehicles will not be parked in the way of the planned event area.  Special event permit holders must follow specific procedures to lawfully remove these vehicles.  It is important to note a vehicle parked on a public street may only be removed by the order of a police officer whenever the vehicle owner is not present to give consent.


  • The document, Towing Vehicles Due To Special Event, specifically outlines all the required steps to lawfully remove a vehicle in the way of an event.
