What is the fee if my vehicle was stored/impounded?

There are certain fees for certain
storage/impound violations. The Police Department charges a onetime fee for the
storage, we do not charge per day storage. However, the tow companies that
store vehicles are private entities to which the Police Department/City does
not regulate their respective fees. Tow companies charge certain fees based on
the actual tow, and daily storage of the vehicle. Companies working with Police
Agencies must maintain a standard fee schedule regulated by the California
Highway Patrol. The Police Department charges the below fees for
stored/impounded vehicles:

            Storages                                  $120.00

            Impounds/Drive Arrested        $240.00

            DUI                                          $500.00

            The Police Department only takes
exact cash when the City Finance Department is closed (Fri-Sun).
