What can I do about cars and trucks parked in front of my house?
California State law states vehicles parked on the street over 72 hours may be considered abandoned vehicles. Please contact Lake Forest Police Services at (949) 770-6011 to report the location and description of the automobile. Parking control staff will check the vehicle to make sure it is not stolen, confirm it is properly registered, and mark the vehicle's tire. The vehicle can be cited 72 hours after it is marked and ultimately towed away at the owner's expense. Anyone may park their vehicle on a public street if it is legally parked and properly registered.
