Vehicles that are parked on a City street in the same spot for more than seven days may be considered abandoned and are subject to ticketing and/or towing—even if you have a valid residential parking permit. If you plan to be on vacation past the 7-day limit, please request a temporary parking pass so that the City is aware that your vehicle has not been abandoned. Finally, if a vehicle is deemed to be abandoned and also presents any type of safety issue, the City may tow that vehicle immediately.
If you would like to report a vehicle as being abandoned, email AbandonedV@WilmingtonDE.gov. Please provide the following information:
Vehicle make and model
Vehicle tag number
Specific location where the abandoned vehicle is located
