What does Vehicle Forfeiture mean?

Drivers may be required in some states to forfeit their vehicle if they are arrested for certain driving offenses such as driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). Vehicle Forfeiture can also happen if a driver's license was already cancelled or suspended due to previous DUI or driving infractions.

State vehicle forfeiture statutes have been upheld by the United States Supreme Court and can be considered "civil collateral" for committing certain types of driving offenses.
