Know how long can my vehicle be parked on the street without moving it?

The California Vehicle Code allows local jurisdictions to regulate how long a vehicle may be parked in one spot without moving. The City of Gonzales has such a regulation that makes it unlawful to park a vehicle on a public street for over 72 hours without moving it.

This regulation applies to motor vehicles, boats, trailers, or recreational vehicles that are left standing on a public street for more than 72 hours.

If your vehicle isn't moved within 72 hours, an officer or employee of the police department has the right to issue your vehicle a parking violation notice. There is also a vehicle code section that allows the officer or employee to have the vehicle towed and stored at the owner’s expense. 

Abandoned vehicles and vehicles that can not be driven on the road can be towed away at anytime.
