A brief summary of options are as follows:

Vehicle impound fees and bonds vary depending on:

  • What the driver was charged with
  • Prior convictions of the driver; and/or
  • Age of the vehicle.

If the driver was charged with a felony under State Statute, no fees are owed to the Municipality of Anchorage, but the state may charge its own fees.

A vehicle impounded for a DUI, DWLS/R/C, or Solicitation is considered either an Impound or Forfeiture depending on the Driver's prior convictions:

If the driver does NOT have any prior convictions, the vehicle is considered an impound;

If the driver has one or more prior convictions for either DUI, DWLS/R/C, or Solicitation the vehicle is considered a forfeiture.

A vehicle impounded for DWOI is considered either a Decline, Impound or Forfeiture.

If the driver does NOT have any prior convictions for insurance charges, the vehicle is considered a decline;

If the driver has one prior conviction for a DWOI, the vehicle is considered an impound;

If the driver has more than one prior conviction for DWOI, the vehicle is considered a forfeiture.
