A brief summary of options are as follows:

Vehicle impound fees and bonds vary depending on:

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

If the driver was charged or cited 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, certain 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, certain DWLS/R/C, or Solicitation the vehicle is considered a forfeiture.

A vehicle impounded for DWOI or certain DWLS/R/C is considered a Decline.
