NO, the city CANT repossess your car. They can impound it for a violation of a city law. The only one who can repo a car is the LEINHOLDER. THEY can repo it as a result of the city impounding it for the cities reasons. And only repo it AFTER they pay the city and/or impound fees.

Yes - they can have it towed for example if it is abandoned on the side of the road and the lender would have to pay the amount due to get it back just to repossess it. Their lien takes precedence over all others.

All-day parking in Chicago can be found in downtown Chicago, but parking restrictions vary depending on the street you're parking on. In the city, many Chicago parking garages offer all-day parking.

Can your car get towed in California for unpaid tickets?

Yes. They scan the streets with special cameras that scan the license plates, looking for any past due parking tickets. If they find that car, they break in, and tow it away, so they can make you pay even more money on top of the tickets, or keep your car. They don't take any money once they catch you---they insist on taking your car, and and towing it. Its a racket.
