This probably requires the least clarification. Each map has several parking spaces on which you can park your vehicle while doing your business in the area. Using parking spaces is the only free way to leave your vehicle somewhere but note that your vehicle might get impounded if parked improperly (occuping multiple parking spaces, obstructing road access, etc.). Another big downside to this free way of parking is that it can be stolen by other player and that it won't get saved in case of a server restart.
#### **Impound Lot**
When your vehicle is involved in a crime or an offense, a officer may decide to impound your vehicle. On official servers, the impound lot can be found at every Police Station or Sheriffs Department (private servers may relocate its location). Your vehicle will remain in the impound lot for a total of 2 RL months and can be retrieved for a fee of 500. If you do not get your vehicle after these 2 months, it will get scrapped or be placed for public auction.
#### **Private & Public Garages**
Public Garages are your choice when you don't own any real estate. They save your vehicles for a total of 3 RL years an can be found on serveral places all over the map*. The only downside of public garages is its availability to law enforcing bodies. This means you better shouldn't place any illegal vehicles inhere as they might get discovered.
Private Garages provide the same service as public ones, with the exception that they can be anywhere on the map where you can buy or build a real estate. On top its safe from all law enforcing bodies aslong as you pay the bills for your property.
