Note: Due to budgetary constraints, the City of Houston has made the following changes to the SAFEClear program:

  • SafeClear tows previously funded by the City and free to the public will now be charged to the vehicle owner directly at a rate of $60.00 for a tow.
  • For vehicle owners who are unable to pay the charge at the point of service, vehicles will be towed and placed in a city approved storage facility for up to 48 hours at no charge to the owner. Storage fees will be applied after the first 48 hours in addition to the $60 towing charge.
