How to Get Your Car Out of Impound After Being Towed

The City of New Orleans, Department of Public Works Parking and Towing Divisions will resume standard parking enforcement and towing operations citywide beginning at 7 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 10, bringing an end to the leniency the city has demonstrated as residents recovered from Hurricane Ida.

Standard parking enforcement protocol includes regulating parking meters, ticket writing, towing and vehicle booting. Parking Enforcement can be requested 24-hours, daily, by calling (504) 658-8100.

All vehicles parked on neutral grounds and sidewalks should be moved prior to 7 a.m. Sunday, or they will be subject to parking enforcement, which prohibits parking on neutral grounds and sidewalks.

Residents are reminded to reference the Parking 101 guide from the City’s Parking Division to avoid citations and ensure that their vehicle is parked safely.   

For any questions regarding these changes or any parking enforcement questions in general, residents can send an email to the City of New Orleans Department of Public Works’ Parking Division at
