Private towing; one-hour limitation. Prohibits private towing from a parking lot or area where there is no fee for parking within one hour of the vehicle's being parked. The bill creates exemptions for vehicles parked in a manner that is otherwise prohibited by law or vehicles parked in residential parking or in spaces reserved for hotel or motel guests. The bill provides that a person in violation of this requirement is civilly liable to the owner of the vehicle or his agent for double the amount of the towing and storage fees incurred. The bill requires local ordinances authorizing private towing to contain the same requirements. Read the Bill »
