Tagged_Vehicle_1On Thursday the Plymouth Police Department started tagging vehicles that had obviously not moved since the snow storm over this past weekend.

Police Chief Dave Bacon said, “It is necessary to tag the vehicles so that the street department can effectively clear the roadways and city owned parking lots.”

Plymouth police officers tagged thirty-eight vehicles on Thursday.

Plymouth Municipal Code defines an abandoned vehicle (in part) as

(1) a vehicle located on public property illegally;

(2) A vehicle left on public property continuously without being moved for 3 days;

(3) A vehicle located on public property in such a manner as to constitute a hazard or obstruction to the movement of pedestrian or vehicular traffic on a public right-of-way;
