CHARLOTTE, NC. -- The Office of Governor Pat McCrory announced Thursday morning that under the current state of emergency and North Carolina's quick clearance law, crews will be moving cars to the shoulder wherever possible.
For public safety and to assure that salt and sand trucks and snow plows can effectively work to clear the roads, North Carolina Highway Patrol and NCDOT officials are working with local law enforcement entities to move abandoned vehicles that are blocking travel lanes or posing an immediate safety hazard.
If your vehicle was abandoned within city limits, be sure to check with your local police department. If your car was left outside of city limits, call NCHP at (919) 733-3861 to track down your vehicle.
In Charlotte, officials were allowing cars to stay unless they blocked roads or the paths of snow plows. Starting at 7 a.m. Friday, crews will begin to tow away vehicles left on the roads.
