Provo Tow To Go

I know I've written about this before, but it happened again. Rachel's car got towed from the Macey's parking lot. She had to park there for work since the hospital's parking lot is under construction. The tow signs are required to have the name, phone number, and location of the towing company. None of the signs have the location because the tow companies don't want people breaking in to get their car.

The guy wouldn't give my car back so I told him that I was going to call the police. Officer Barker came and told me that Provo City Council even approved the tow signs. However, he also admitted that the signs aren't legal according to the Provo City Code. I guess the police just turn a blind eye to the fact that all tow signs in Provo aren't even legal.

So he made the guy open the gate and we got our car back for free, which saved us a cool $100.

FYI - here is my previous post about the last time this happened: http://www.jamesrowell.com/2005/11/i-got-my-towed-car-back-for-free.html
