Roswell police will not ticket or tow most abandoned vehicles parked on city streets during the city’s emergency response to the coronavirus.

The police department issued a statement, Monday, saying that unless a parked vehicle blocks emergency services or equipment such as a fire hydrant; or a driveway in a residential neighborhood, it will not be towed.

Police have received several complaints regarding abandoned vehicles.

In ordinary times, in Roswell, it’s illegal to leave a parked car on city streets for more than 12 hours.

Roswell declared a state of emergency on March 17. City offices, parks and facilities have been closed and restaurants are limited to takeout and delivery only.
