Traffic Services

Have you been towed?

If you cannot locate your vehicle where you last parked it, it may not necessarily have been stolen.

Vehicles can be impounded for the following reasons:

  • By-Law Infraction
  • Abandoned
  • Driver has been arrested (i.e.: impaired driving, stunt, driving)
  • Recovered stolen vehicle
  • Vehicle has been involved in a collision

If your car has been moved, follow these steps:

  • Call the Toronto Police Service at 416-808-2222 and ask for communications
  • Please have your vehicle license plate number and your vehicles last location ready when calling
  • Communications will advise if your vehicle has been impounded or relocated.  If it is determined that your vehicle has been impounded, call the appropriate towing company immediately to make arrangement to retrieve it.  Remember that storage fees continue to accrue, so attend to your vehicle as quickly as possible.

The storage day is 24 hours from the time the vehicle arrives at the pound. Twenty-five per cent of the 24-hour storage fee is chargeable for each of the first four hours, which shall include any part of an hour. One hour is payable as soon as the vehicle arrives at the pound.

The hourly rate and minimum rate will reapply at the conclusion of each 24-hour period.
