Can the city repossess your car for parking tickets and keep it?

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.

The boot is also called the trunk . It can also be what the parking enforcement officer puts on your wheel to keep from moving it for unpaid traffic tickets.

Technically they can keep them forever. I have dealt with tickets from Texas that were as much as 20 years old and were showing up when the court computerized their files.

Well, do you want to keep your aircraft on the run-way? For parking of course.

Only if the tags stay with the car in that state.

i can stop a toddler from running into a parking lot by holding their hands, keep them in the car if you have one or keep close watch to them
