Vehicles parked on the street more than 24 hours are considered abandoned


Under the provincial Motor Vehicle Act, any vehicle parked on a street more than 24 hours is considered to be abandoned, and can be towed.

City streets are intended for the movement of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, not for long term parking. As well, street maintenance can be hampered by parked cars.

To report an abandoned vehicle in your neighbourhood, contact the Saint John Police Force at 648-3333.
