MY CAR WAS TOWED IN CHARLOTTE. WHAT DO I DO NOW? WHERE IS MY TOWED CAR IN CHARLOTTE?

If your car was towed, two stickers should have been placed. One sticker was placed on the towed vehicle and it states the citation number, the reason for the car being towed and how to appeal the citation. The second sticker is placed if the car is towed. In that case, a sticker is placed on the meter adjacent to where the vehicle was parked before it was towed. It will have the reason the vehicle was towed, the way to appeal the citation, and the address and phone number of the wrecker company holding the vehicle. Look around the area where the vehicle was towed. The sticker left by the wrecker company after towing will often be attached to a nearby object.

SUMMARY: IN CHARLOTTE, IF YOUR VEHICLE WAS TOWED, IT WAS PROBABLY TOWED BY A WRECKER COMPANY!

You can contact the Charlotte Department of Transportation at 704-336-4119. If you have a question about a particular parking violation, you can call 704-375-3177.

WHAT IS PROOF OF FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY?

The Dallas Police Department‘s Auto Pound requires proof of financial responsibility in order to drive a car out of the lot.  This means that you must show proof of insurance and that the insurance policy must be valid and in effect.  The Dallas Auto Pound will not release your car without proof of insurance (unless you are a Lien holder repossessing the vehicle, a Motor Vehicle Insurance Company or taking an Auctioned Vehicle).

You MUST ALWAYS CARRY PROOF OF INSURANCE IN DALLAS.  According to the Dallas Police Department Website, if your car is towed due to you having NO INSURANCE, a citation will be issued and the fees can not be waived.  It is important to keep your car insurance policy updated and to carry your proof of insurance/insurance card at all times.  Please note, many auto insurance companies will offer you a digital insurance card which is accessible by phone.  Many Governmental Agencies do not accept such e-insurance cards as valid proof of insurance.

 

COST TO RETRIEVE TOWED VEHICLE IN DALLAS

The Towing Fees in Dallas are generally $121 if the towed car is picked up on the same day.  You will also have to pay a $20 impound fee which is for administrative costs related to towing.  You will pay an additional $20 for every additional day the vehicle is at the auto pound.  But wait, that’s not all, if the vehicle is at the Dallas Auto Pound for more than 48 hours, a notification letter is sent.  You will have to pay an additional $50 for the notification fee.
