RECOVERY OF VEHICLES FROM THE MUNICIPAL POUND

The municipal tow truck is authorised to remove a vehicle and take it to the municipal pound in the event of illegal parking, security concerns or the commitment of any other type of infraction (lack of documentation, drink driving, judicial order, traffic accidents, incorrect documentation etc.)

In general, it is possible to go to the pound directly and get the vehicle back on the spot, after having paid the appropriate fee (it is possible to pay in cash or by card). In some circumstances, depending on the infraction that has been committed, it is necessary to go to the Guardia Municipal [municipal police] first to ask them for permission to collect the vehicle.
