Traffic Services

Have you been towed?

If your car is not where you last parked it, it doesn't mean it has been stolen. Vehicles are impounded and relocated for various reasons. If your car has been moved, follow these steps:

1) Call the Toronto Police Service non-emergency line at 416-808-2222, press 4, then press 2, which will put you in contact with the communications dispatcher.

2) Please have the correct vehicle licence plate number and your vehicle's last known location available.

3) The dispatcher will advise you if your car has been impounded or relocated, as well as the vehicle's current location.

Once you have determined that your vehicle has been impounded, call the appropriate towing company immediately, to make arrangements to retrieve it. Remember that storage fees continue to accrue, so attend the impound facility 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.
