My boyfriend parked at a publix designated parking spot and went in to publix to get a money order for approximately 5-7 min. When he came out, his car was towed. Publix said there is nothing they can do about it. The towing company said he was parked there too long. What can he do about it? What’s the best way to go about it? Or is it just a loss?
Beats me, but I can tell you that this question has nothing to do with "speeding and traffic tickets" (it is, if anything, a civil law matter).
You can file a complaint against the tow company through Miami-Dade's Regulatory and Economic Services Department at the following link:

Remember the longer he leaves his car in impound at the tow lot the more money they will rack up against him in fees.
Wishing your b/f luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.

First, go get your car from the tow yard as they will charge you for every day it is there. If you believe it was towed unlawfully, ask Publix if they authorized the tow. A tow company, has certain protocol to follow with the land owner in order to be able to tow. Also were the signs limiting the time you could park there?
