- When a vehicle is parked in a lot or on-street past the posted closure times
- When a vehicle is parked in front of a fire hydrant
- When a vehicle is parked in front of a driveway
If your vehicle is towed, please call (757) 385-3111 to find out where your vehicle has been taken. The cost of a tow is $145 and the tow company may or may not take credit cards. Payment is due before the vehicle is released from the impound lot.

Do Not Tow Program
This program allows drivers too impaired to safely operate their vehicle to leave it overnight in a municipal parking lot. The driver must call 385-5600 to acquire a “Do Not Tow” sticker. A sticker will not be issued unless the driver has a ride to immediately leave the premises. Vehicles must be retrieved between 8AM and 12PM the following day or be subject to paying lot the entry to fee to retrieve the vehicle.
Individuals have the right to appeal a tow. To start the process, contact the 2nd Precinct at 757-385-2700.
