Description

Towing fees. Applies the existing fee limitations for towing, storage, and safekeeping of passenger cars removed, towed, or stored from private property without the consent of the owner to all vehicles towed pursuant to a lawful request for towing by a law-enforcement officer or other uniformed employee of a law-enforcement agency who specifically is authorized to make such request. The bill authorizes the hookup and initial towing fee to be up to 2.5 times the amount authorized for other tows when the vehicle being towed is involved in a crash or traffic incident and is located so as to impede the orderly flow of traffic. The bill requires towing and recovery operators responding to a request for towing by a law-enforcement officer to provide to the owner or operator of the vehicle being towed a written explanation of fees charged by the towing and recovery operator. The bill provides that such fee limits shall not apply if a local governing body has established different fee limits by ordinance. Read the Bill »
