Councilmember Julissa Ferreras’ office has been working along with local precincts for over a year to help remove illegally parked cars.
These cars, which often have no plates and no registration, are left parked on the streets for long periods of time with no one coming to claim the vehicles.
Working with the 115th and 110th precincts, cars that have been parker longer than three days may face being towed.
“Every time a car is illegally parked for days at a time, it not only takes away parking from the numerous residents living within my district, but it also affects the local economy by taking up spaces that are used to serve small businesses,” said Ferreras.
According to the Councilmember’s office, the 115th Precinct conducted a tow/enforcement operation on Monday, March 12 near 103rd Street and 37th Avenue in Corona. During the operation, a total of four vehicles were impounded, each having a “for sale” marking and noted to have been parked for an extended period of time.
