If your car is impounded for a traffic violation such as driving on a suspended insurance your car goes to the police impound lot until you claim it. Unclaimed vehicles are auctioned by the police after a certain period because some people can’t afford to pay the impound fees that run in the excess of $2k. While they are taking care of fines, tickets, and getting their insurance straightened out, the impound fees are running up. Oh, there is no payment plan with the impound lot. We are talking about new cars being withheld for $2k or $5k! We should all open impound lots.
