You need to figure out the cheapest option for you.

Storage lots love people like you, since (every) day it sits, they add storage fees (each) day that you will owe and they can sue you for, if you don’t pay.

So, you might want to pay to get your registration current, so you can get your vehicle back.

Or see if the lot will agree to keep your car, but you will still owe the fees to (that) date you give to the lot.

Or see if a charity would be willing to take your car, and once again, (till) they take it, then you owe the fees.

I have attached a site that breakdowns the cost that you would owe, and just on day (2) would owe $242, (storage) and does not include the cost to the towing company, but that does not include the cost to (release) the car, which you need to read down the article to see they add a bunch of other costs.

So the key is, that whatever you decide, then you must do ASAP, since every day it sits, the cost will continue to rise.

Texas Law Sec. 683.013.

A law enforcement agency or the agent of a law enforcement agency that takes into custody an abandoned motor vehicle is entitled to charge reasonable storage fees:

(1) for not more than 10 days, beginning on the day the item is taken into custody and ending on the day the required notice is mailed; and

(2) beginning on the day after the day the agency mails notice and ending on the day accrued charges are paid and the vehicle, watercraft, or outboard motor is removed.

Sec. 19-401. .

(a) When a storage facility acquires possession of a private property non-consent towed motor vehicle, the storage facility is entitled to recover:

(1) Towing charges, if applicable;
(2) Impound fees when authorized by the Texas Administrative Code;
(3) Storage fees as allowed by state law; and
(4) Notification charges.

So yes, you will get charged for the tow, up to 10 days of storage, an impound fee, the cost of notifying you, and any associated administrative costs. This can add up to several hundred dollars.

EPIC FAIL

your fine will be in the mail... wait for it... wait for it... wait for it... it will come... wait for it...

just a note: without the license plates on the car, the city would have trouble tracking you down.

It's not the parking fine you need to worry about, it's the towing and storage fees. Daily storage fees, just so you know.

The fine is nothing, often under a hundred for minor offences. The tow costs whatever a standard tow costs where you live (it varies greatly by city, not just by state), and then those daily lot fees start piling up. Where I live, lot fees are between $95 and $150 per day. Where you live, well, you might want to find that out.

If you refuse to pay the fees, they'll sell your vehicle to the highest bidder and send you a bill for whatever is still owing. If you still refuse, they'll go through the courts to have your assets seized and / or your income garnisheed.

You will get charged for towing and storage.

Here is the city ordinance on towing... https://www.sanantonio.gov/Portals/0/Fil...

If you leave the vehicle with the tow company, they will file a mechanic's lien and eventually sell the vehicle. The part they don't mention is that they will bill you the towing/storage fees, and if you don't pay, can and will take you to court over those fees. And they will win. I didn't read the entire ordinance, but if storage is, say $50 a day, and they have to hold the vehicle for 60 days before auctioning it off, that's $3,000 that you will still owe them on top of the tow fee.

Best bet is to contact the tow company holding the vehicle and attempt to just sell it to them. They probably won't agree, as they stand to make a lot more money on storage fees, but it's worth a try. Otherwise pay what you owe now to avoid a much larger fee and a trip to court.

That's fine, forget about it. But also forget about attempting to register any motor vehicle in the future as well.

They keep it for a certain amount of time then auction it off. Meanwhile, you'll get a bill for storage fees

There is some remote possibility that it might depend on what city you are asking about. I am pretty sure that San Francisco and Prague have different laws and procedures.
