Can towing company charge $2,500 fine for not picking up my car?

Um... yes. You owe the fees. Towing and impoundment is a scam... but it’s legal.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
On US currency, there is an official dictate that the currency can satisfy any publicly or private debt. Your car on the other hand, has no such official designation. Much like if they owed you money and wanted to pay you in wood chips you would disagree.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
