Snow Emergency Towing

Vehicles left on the streets or in public parking lots during snow emergencies may be ticketed and towed.

If a snow emergency is declared in Hopkins during the afternoon or early evening, tagging and towing enforcement generally begins at 10 pm. However, depending on the snow fall, tagging and towing could begin earlier. The Snow Line, 952-939-1399, will have the actual time. When a snow emergency is declared after 10 pm, tagging and towing operations begin at 8 am on the following day.

If your vehicle is towed

If your vehicle is towed during a snow emergency, call Bobby & Steve’s at 952-406-8111 to confirm the location of your vehicle. Vehicles are released only to the registered owners. Owners need to bring proof of ownership, proof of insurance, and a valid driver’s license to claim their vehicles. Payment is accepted by cash (exact change only) or credit cards. The impound lot is located at 5100 Park Glen Rd, St. Louis Park. Note: The City of Hopkins receives no money when cars are towed – all fees go to the towing company.
