Abandoned vehicles create community problems. Street cleaning and snow removal become difficult tasks with abandoned vehicles in the way. Abandoned vehicles in yards are possible fire hazards. Abandoned vehicles project a negative image of our city. Together, we can give Detroit the necessary makeover to produce clean streets. If the vehicle is your own: move it, have it towed, or donate it. If the vehicle is not yours; REPORT it to your local police precinct.

City Ord. - Sec. 55-6-85.
When are vehicles deemed abandoned.
The following conditions are required before any vehicle shall be deemed to be an abandoned vehicle:

(1) The vehicle shall be abandoned when it has remained on a public street, highway, alley or public place for a period of forty-eight (48) continuous hours or more and from its condition and the surrounding circumstances, shall reasonably appear to be unclaimed, discarded, deserted or abandoned.

(2) A vehicle is deemed abandoned on private property when it has remained on the private property for a period of forty-eight (48) continuous hours or more without the consent of the owner or lessee of the property, or for a period of forty-eight (48) continuous hours or more after the consent of the owner has been revoked.
