What classifies a car or truck as a “junked vehicle”?

Any vehicle can be labeled a "junked vehicle" if a) it has an expired license plate/registration, b) it lacks a valid motor vehicle inspection certificate, c) is wrecked, dismantled, or partially dismantled or discarded, or d) has remained inoperable for more than seventy-two hours while on public property or thirty consecutive days while on private property.  A public hearing before the City Council must be conducted before the City can remove a vehicle off public right-of-way or private property.  For more information on junked vehicles, see Article 8.06 of the City's Code of Ordinances.
