Towing Abandoned Vehicles And Wrecks
According to the Maintenance of Cleanliness Bylaw (hebrew), a vehicle left in one public space for a period longer than 60 days, will be towed by the minicipality. After being cleared away the vehicle will be perceived as a wreck and will become municipality property.
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.
