Junked Vehicles are defined as motor vehicles, watercraft or aircraft that are self propelled and have at least one condition from each category below:
For Motor Vehicles:
Expired or missing registration sticker
Expired or missing inspection sticker
Expired FAA ID Number
Expired certificate or number
Inoperable for 30 or more days on private property
Inoperable for 72 hours on public property
Due to legal processes, it may take up to 30 or more days from the time we receive a complaint to remove a junked vehicle. Vehicles towed under the city's junked vehicle ordinance are considered a seizure and become the the property of the City of Red Oak. Once seized, junked vehicles are disposed of as provided by State Law.
Other Nuisance Vehicles:
Vehicles that are registered and inspected but are wrecked or dismantled can also be addressed, but the city can not legally tow these vehicles from private property.
Vehicles abandoned on the street, regardless of condition however, are subject to impoundment.
