Impounded Vehicles in West Chester

What Should I Do If My Vehicle Was Impounded for DUI?

Vehicles can be towed and even impounded for many offenses, such as parking in a no-park zone or having invalid registration or licensing. However, one of the most common reasons for impounding a vehicle would be due to DUI offenses and other crimes involving a vehicle.

If you or someone you love has been charged with driving under the influence and your vehicle was impounded, be sure to contact our West Chester DUI lawyers right away for a free consultation.

Fighting DUI Charges

Getting your vehicle impounded because of a DUI, a vehicular offense, or several other types of criminal offenses, then you should know that you have the right to ask the police for your vehicle back. While officers have the right to tow a vehicle, they do not have the right to keep it away from you.

Vehicles can be impounded for the following reasons:

  • The vehicle is causing a traffic block.
  • There is evidence of drugs in the car.
  • The car was identified as being used in a crime.
  • There is evidence of open alcohol containers.
  • The vehicle poses a risk to public safety.

Once a vehicle is impounded, the police do not need a warrant to search the vehicle. That means, any evidence they uncover, no matter how slight, can be documented and even used against you if prosecutors have pressed charges. You may need to have a court order to have your car returned to you. That is why it is critical to have knowledgeable and aggressive West Chester criminal defense attorneys assisting you with your case.
