well it depends on why it has been impounded but most of the time all you have to do is go to the place where it has been taken and pay a fee to them and usually they will give you your car back

You will need to show proof of ownership, usually the title, and present proper identification. If there is no "hold" on the vehicle per law enforcement, you will sign the necessary release documents for the impound company and pay the pending fees. Reciept will be issued and the vehicle released to you.

Your car has obviously been towed away and impounded so you are going to have to find out what towing company took it. If you have been in an accident then it's in a police impound.

Was it parked in a no parking zone? Was it parked in a reserved spot?
