10/03/2010 – Sgt. Francis Rich

Abandoned Vehicles
As a result of numerous complaints of Abandoned Vehicles on borough owned streets and on privately owned property, St. Francis Rich has been actively documenting these vehicles for citation or removal. By statute, an abandoned vehicle is any vehicle on public or private property that does not display a current inspection, registration or is in such condition that it endangers the public’s safety. Even though our red stickers indicated 5 days, state law supersedes local law and requires a period of approximately 30 days, during which owner notification is attempted, before police action is permitted.
