COLORADO, USA — A new bill signed into law last Tuesday requires Colorado towing companies to give vehicle owners 24 hours' written notice before removing a vehicle from the parking spot of a condominium, cooperative, apartment, or mobile home park.
To perform a tow from private property normally used for parking, the new law requires the property owner to provide adequate signs communicating the parking regulations that subject a vehicle to being towed.
Sponsors believe the new towing bill of rights increases protections for car owners, while some towing companies believe these new rights could affect the way they do business.
This new law may protect those who can't afford to pay hundreds of dollars to pick up their vehicle from an impound lot. Jonathan Collins, president of Collins Towing said these new laws could even impact those who pay for their parking spots.
"These communities at night are completely full – with that being they should have the rights to be able to call a towing company and tow them out of their parking spot," said Collins.
