Ever been towed?

Friday, January 9, 2009
Everyone has a coming of age story about how they were unfairly towed. I, of course, have been screwed a time or two by seedy towing companies. Texas Towing Compliance is an organization trying to put a stop to illegal towing in Austin. They say "your chances of being charged an unauthorized fee by the wrecker driver in a parking lot in Austin is extremely high" and you there are several things you can do to get out of paying them any money. Apparently there is only one sign that is acceptable and legal to tow your car if it's present. All of these below are illegal.

I don't think they give a picture of the legal one, but there are several more pictures of illegal signs and things to watch out for. It's a pretty helpful site. You should check it out.
