Abandoned and impounded vehicles

Adelaide Hills Council may tow a vehicle if:

  • A complaint has been received about that vehicle; and
  • Council establishes that the vehicle has not moved for 24 hours.

If you have left your vehicle parked illegally Adelaide Hills Council inspectors or police can arrange for it to be towed if they believe it is:

  • a danger to other road users;
  • likely to cause traffic congestion; and/or
  • likely to obstruct access to a property.

Vehicles will only be impounded as a last resort, after all efforts have been made to locate the owner and have them remove the vehicle.
If you wish to report a vehicle that may have been abandoned, or if you believe your vehicle has been removed, please contact the Adelaide Hills Council Rangers on 8408 0400. 

Council acknowledges that we conduct our business on the traditional lands and waters of the Peramangk and Kaurna people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging as the Custodians of this ancient and beautiful land.
