TOWING AND STORAGE OF MOTOR VEHICLES
49-1806. Removal — booting of unauthorized and abandoned vehicle from real property. (1) Any person having possession or control of real property who finds an unauthorized vehicle standing upon his property is permitted to have the vehicle removed or booted if there is posted on or near the property in a clearly conspicuous location, in large print, a sign or notice that unauthorized vehicles will be removed or booted at the owner’s expense and designating the name of the towing firm. Unauthorized vehicles need not meet the provision of section 49-102(2), Idaho Code, in this instance. No vehicle shall be considered unauthorized and subject to removal or booting pursuant to the provisions of this subsection solely on the basis of the vehicle having expired or improper vehicle registration.
(2) Any person having possession or control of real property who finds an abandoned vehicle standing on his property, where the property is not posted as set out in subsection (1) of this section, may contact an authorized officer, who must in turn comply with the provisions of section 49-1804, Idaho Code, in accomplishing the removal of the vehicle except under those circumstances set out in subsection (3) of this section.
(3) Where access into or out of private property or substantial interference with the use and enjoyment of private property is created by an unauthorized or abandoned vehicle being parked or otherwise left on private property, the person owning or controlling the property may contact an authorized officer who may, without regard for the provisions of section 49-1804, Idaho Code, immediately proceed to have the vehicle removed to a garage or nearest place of safety. All other provisions of this chapter shall be complied with.
