OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Starting on Jan. 11, Omaha Police will be looking for unlicensed, unregistered vehicles, and dead storage vehicles (vehicles not moving after being parked on the street for over 48 hours).

Police said in a release that unlicensed vehicles parked on city streets that do not have valid dealership in-transit stickers displayed are subject to being towed immediately. Vehicles found to be dead storage are also subject to being towed. Vehicles parked in prohibited places, such as on or blocking a sidewalk, are subject to being ticketed or towed.

Officers will also continue to target vehicle and vehicle parts stored on private property that are in violation of city code such as not being parked on a paved surface. In those cases, police said officers will leave a “notice of nuisance” at the residence saying the issue needs to be addressed within 10 days.

Vehicles on private property that are deemed to cause imminent danger to public health or safety, such as being on jacks are subject to immediate tow.
