If your car is impounded during a traffic stop arrest can the impound yard refuse access to your property inside the vehicle?


It depends on why it was impounded and what state you are in. In California, you may not be allowed access if it was impounded as evidence to a suspected crime, but you should be allowed access if was towed for any other reason. You may remove personal property that is not attached to the vehicle if you are the registered owner, their spouse, or have power of attorney from the registered owner.
