What can I do about cars that park and never move from in front of my house?
Vehicles parked on the street over 72 hours may be considered abandoned vehicles. Provide the location and description of the automobile to the dispatch at 650-726-8286 or the abandoned vehicle hotline 650-750-2030 option 3. We will come out and check to ensure that the vehicle is not stolen, and confirm that it is currently registered.

The deputy will then place a warning notice on the vehicle. If vehicle does not move at least 1/10th of a mile, the vehicle can be cited after 72 hours and ultimately towed away at the owner's expense. It is not unlawful to park a vehicle on a public street, even in front of your house, if it is legally parked, currently registered and moves every 72 hours.
