More Than 100 Vehicles Towed Under City's New Policy

The city's new towing policy took effect October 16.
About three weeks into the city's new impound policy, officers say it's going smoothly.

The policy took effect October 16 and means if you are stopped or in an accident and don't have insurance or a license, your car will be towed.

WFPD Deputy Chief Guy Gilmore says, "Basically if you do not have a drivers license or a valid drivers license or if you don't have insurance and you're driving a vehicle within city limits, we'll issue a citation and we'll also impound your vehicle."

Those vehicles are then taken to the city's impound facility in the 3100 block of Armory Rd.

On top of paying for their vehicle to be towed, owners also have to pay a $25 fee.

Since the policy took effect, officers say 77 vehicles have been impounded because the driver had no license or an invalid license and 49 vehicles were towed because the driver didn't have insurance.

That would equal more than $3100 in fees collected so far.

That money will go straight into the city's general fund.
