Know About Illegal Towing Practices

Here are some of the more common laws that some towing companies violate. We all know that sometimes it seems there are just too many laws, however also we are happy that most of these laws exist as they are protecting us from harm. Our goal is to educate the general public about illegal practices by some towing companies that can be destructive to the public in general.

The most common complaint heard from the public is “my car was towed without proper cause”, followed by “something was stolen from my car though it was being towed”. Tow drivers are at times not right licensed to drive the type of tow truck that they are driving.

The laws allow for the appropriation and removal of illegally parked vehicles on both personal and public property. Some areas are towing vehicles without waiting the required 1 hour period in a public lot, while others you can get away with parking illicitly for 1 hour.

The next issue is theft of personal property while in the towed motor vehicle. Any time a vehicle that is unattended by the owner, and a number of other people have access to it, there stands to be risk of property theft.

Towed vehicle spoil is another area consumers can be hurt. Damages to a vehicle can happen when equipment is not properly maintained. A quality towing company will also have honorable values and want their clients to be safe, thus they would not hire an individual convicted of a major crime.
