According to the same law, returning a vehicle to its owners after it has been stored will only occur if the vehicle owner has paid for all municipality expenses in the towing and storing of the vehicle and any other fines.

The municipality will tow a vehicle if it has not been moved after 60 days from the prospective towing notice slip on the vehicle's windshield.
