Definition of Vehicle Confiscation

In many states a driver's automobile may be confiscated if the driver has been charged with driving under the influence or other types of traffic violations. Vehicle confiscation is generally not used unless there is a gross violation or misconduct on the part of the driver, but it can be temporary or permanent. Drivers may have to pay stiff fines, penalties and administrative fees to get their vehicle returned to them.
