If your vehicle parked on the street is marked for tow with a green sticker, you have 48 hours to move it before it's towed away.
Last week, Officer Charley Davidson gave a seven-day notice to all Wichita residents regarding the Wichita Police Department's second "Blight Tow Project."
Today, May 7, inoperable vehicles, stored trailers and vehicles without current tags on city streets will be marked with a green sticker. Once marked for tow, you have 48 hours to remove the vehicle from the street. Vehicles that are not moved will be towed on Wednesday, May 9, Davidson said.
Wichita city ordinance 11.97.010 gives the Police Department and other city employees the authority to tow or impound any unoccupied vehicle left continuously on a city street for 48 hours or longer.

"These efforts are to help keep vehicles from becoming a nuisance or creating potentially hazardous conditions," Davidson said. "The Wichita Police Department is working to improve the appearance of local neighborhoods and maintain safety."
If you know of a nuisance vehicle, you can report it to a police substation.
