Why was my vehicle impounded?

Road Runner Wrecker Service works with numerous property management companies to keep their properties secure. Property Management provides a list of violations for Road Runner to enforce, maximizing their property’s safety.

Vehicles are impounded for the following reasons:

  • No visible parking permits
  • Parking in a fire lane
  • Parking in a “No Parking” area
  • Overnight parking
  • Parked blocking sidewalks
  • Expired tags, inspection, or county stickers when parked in reserved parking spaces
  • Inoperable vehicle such as flat tire, broken window, etc.
  • Double parked, outside of parking space, or taking up more than one space
  • Blocked driveway
  • Management requested
  • Other violations specified by the property management company

Is my car safe?

Yes. All vehicles are carefully hooked and towed utilizing our state-of-the-art towing equipment. All impounded vehicles are stored in our lot located at 45660-B Woodland Rd, Sterling, VA 20166. This lot is gated, locked, well-lit, clean, and monitored 24/7 through our dispatch teams and cameras.
