COLUMBUS, OH – Columbus Police Dept made policy changes in 2022 that are now affecting residents of Old Town East in Columbus.

A Nissan Maxima with front end damage, no license plate and a flat tire is parked in front of Emily Prieto’s home. Prieto said the car had been abandoned since last November.

“It hasn’t moved since then. I have no idea what to do next,” she said. stealing cars,” she said.

Police would not confirm that the impoundment capacity was due to stolen vehicles, but the policy change said there was an urgent need to limit towing due to the potential for police impoundment. The site has areas designated for critical seizures.

Examples of what police call critical seizures are damaged and disabled vehicles that blocked the roadway as a result of a traffic accident, or a seizure as a result of a felony.

The division imposed towing restrictions in January 2023. The interim guidelines state that vehicles cannot be towed solely for parking violations.

Police are still urging owners to continue reporting illegally parked vehicles. The department said an officer will respond and handle each incident appropriately — which could include trying to locate the owner or operator and telling them to move the vehicle or issuing a citation.

Prieta still wants to ask the police, “what’s the solution?”

10TV called the dealership where the car came from and was told the car was not stolen and belonged to the customer, but the customer could not be reached.

Meanwhile, Prieto is still waiting for the abandoned car in front of her house to be moved by the owner or towed by the police.
