SPOKANE, Wash — The city of Spokane is trying to get caught up on the higher number of abandoned vehicle reports they have stacked up.

Spokane police has spent three weeks helping the Parking Enforcement Department responding to people's reports all over Spokane, and they have knocked out 700 reports of abandoned cars, which is almost half of what they had stacked up.

Police said the reports are increasing and the towing process could take a while as the way a car is towed is slow and the city is receiving many reports. The process of towering an abandoned car takes long as first officers send a few warnings and tickets to the owner, and if the owner doesn't move the car, parking enforcement officers will start the towing process.
