Pasadena’s New ‘Text Before Tow’ Program Alerts Motorists When Car Is About To Be Towed

Published on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 | 8:16 am

The City of Pasadena’s Department of Transportation is rolling out a new program to provide motorists a better parking experience. The Text Before Tow program notifies enrolled participants via text and email of an impending tow due to blocked driveway, temporary no parking and 72-hour parking violations.

In some situations, motorists are unaware that they’re at risk of being towed and simply need to be alerted. One of the lesser known violations is the 72-hour parking violation. Traditionally, the City leaves a courtesy note when a car is tagged for removal due to violation; however, not everyone sees the note. To help residents avoid a costly tow, Pasadena adopted the San Francisco’s Text Before Tow program, launched in 2022. After a few months of development by the City’s Department of Information Technology, the program is ready to launch here in Pasadena.

Anyone who would like to sign up for the Text Before Tow program may do so for free using this web form. For additional information, contact the Department of Transportation’s Parking Services Division at (626) 744-7665.
