No person shall park or leave unattended a vehicle on private property without the
consent of the owner or other person in control or possession of the property or for
a period in excess of that for which consent was given, except in the case of emergency
or disablement of the vehicle in which case the owner or operator thereof shall arrange
for the expeditious removal of the vehicle. This section shall not apply to manufactured or mobile homes left unattended and
for which there exists or existed a rental agreement to occupy a space on the property.
Subject to the requirements of section 7 of P.L.2007, c. 193 (C.56:13-13), the owner or other person in control or possession of the property on which a vehicle
is parked or left unattended in violation of this section may remove or hire another
person to remove and store the vehicle. It shall be the obligation of the owner of the vehicle to pay the reasonable costs
for the removal and for any storage which may result from such removal before he shall
be entitled to recover the possession of the vehicle. If the owner of the vehicle refuses to pay such costs or fails to make any claim
for the return of the vehicle within 90 days after such removal, the vehicle may be
sold at public auction in accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.2A:44-20 through N.J.S.2A:44-31.
