Will my vehicle be removed?
The police will usually require a vehicle to be removed due to the danger it can cause to other traffic. If the vehicle is not suitable to be driven safely, it will need to be recovered by a garage at the driver's cost. It is driver's responsibility to remove the car although the police can assist if required.
If the car is left by the road, it may be removed by the police using an appointed recovery agent and taken to a secure compound. The driver will be liable for the cost of this. These are statutory charges for removal, storage and in some cases disposal. All such garages are approved by Leicestershire Constabulary and have secure premises to store vehicles and contents.
To find out the location of a recovered vehicle please contact the Vehicle Recovery Officer on 101 ext. 2034/2134. You will need the vehicle registration number and date of recovery.
