What can I do about cars and trucks parked in front of my house?
California State law states vehicles parked on the street for more than 72 hours may be considered abandoned vehicles. Contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at (949) 770-6011 to report the location and description of the vehicle. Parking control staff will make sure the vehicle 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.

For more information on oversized vehicles, refer to the City’s Municipal Code, Chapter 12.16 Stopping, Standing and Parking, 12.16.070 Oversized Vehicle Parking Regulations.
