Wheel clamp

The municipality can decide to place a wheel clamp on a vehicle in a number of situations. This can be a yellow or a red wheel clamp.

Yellow wheel clamp

You can get a yellow wheel clamp on your car if you get a parking fine.

Removing the yellow wheel clamp

To get the wheel clamp removed, you go to the counter of the towing company (Barendregt B.V.). There you have to pay the costs of the wheel clamp and the parking fine. The wheel clamp will then be removed from your vehicle. If you do not pay for the wheel clamp within 24 hours, the car will be towed away.


  • The fees for the parking fine
  • The fee for the wheel clamp is € 306

Red wheel clamp

You can get a red wheel clamp on your car if the bailiff from the Municipal Tax Department seizes your vehicle because you are behind in paying your municipal taxes.

Removing the red wheel clamp

The clamp will be removed once the back taxes have been paid in full. If you are unable to pay, the vehicle will be towed away and sold no later than 1 week before the scheduled sale date. The proceeds from the sale will be deducted from your outstanding debt. Any remaining debt will be claimed in another way. For questions about the red wheel clamp, you can contact the Municipal Tax Department.
