An anonymous call was made to have a trailer (not ours) that's parked and never moved and while they were there supposedly got a call to take my son's truck as well. My son drives his truck everyday and is parked directly in front of our house in the street. Why would they take his truck and not the trailer? He has a valid registration but, is waiting to clear smog so he doesn't have the proper tag yet. How can I go about getting reimbursed from the towing company that had the truck for 2 hours charging $283.00?
In order for the towing to take place the police must have authorized it and cited the vehicle . If this didn't happen it is a civil action.
Your son's registration is invalid once he has been ordered to get his gas guzzler smogged and he has failed to do so within the time limits. Don't go to court over $283; it's a waste of evryone's time and energy including your own.
