No specific time, but you should call AAA asap tonight.

Take some personal responsibility and get the car off the road. If it gets impounded you will end up having to pay for the tow, storage, fees and costs.

The authorities will take care of the vehicle when they get around to it. They have emergencies and other more important priorities than your car.

I truly wish you the best.

This answer is offered for informational purposes only. It is not offered as, and does not constitute, legal advice. Laws vary widely from state to state. You should rely only on the advice given to you during a personal consultation by a local attorney who is thoroughly familiar with state laws and the area of practice in which your concern lies. In the event that you have follow up questions, please post them directly on this site. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and the attorney does not read unsolicited emails. Thank You.
