From what I've read in the Indiana code (article 22 ch 1) private property owners must place notice on vehicle 24 hours before towing [unless there is a safety concern or an impediment of regular business, neither of which applied in this case]. Is there anything I can do to recover the fees to release my vehicle?
My car was parked in what I'd know as the visitor area for an apartment complex. The lot area was practically empty. After returning for my car (which was gone within 3 hours of parking) I saw signs over 75 yards away to each side saying that visitor parking was permit only; these are dark and very easy to miss at night. The person I was visiting was out of permits and unable to obtain more since I decided to visit after the office had closed.
