Many drivers across the region stuck in Wednesday night's snow left their vehicles behind.  Want to know where your car is now?  Here are the numbers to call according to your location.  Authorities ask that callers have their license plate number ready, as well as the make and model of their vehicle.

Some cars in the District were towed away, while others were merely pulled to the curb. Call 202-541-6038 and have your tag number ready to find out where your car was moved.
