Abandoned Vehicles are a nuisance as well as an eyesore. Don't let abandoned vehicles ruin the look of your neighborhood.
Under Pennsylvania's motor vehicle laws, a vehicle is considered abandoned if:
- Left on a highway or public property in inoperable condition for 48 hours or longer
- Left illegally on a highway or public property
- Left on highway or public property for 48 hours or longer and does not have valid license plate, inspection sticker, or VIN number
- Left on private property without owner's consent for 48 hours or longer
If you have a complaint regarding an abandoned vehicle contact an officer via Northampton County Control's non-emergency phone listing, 610-759-2200.
A Police Officer will respond and evaluate the situation. If the vehicle can be classified as abandoned, the vehicle will be removed.
