Just moments ago, the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations Commissioners voted to fine A&A Wrecker & Recovery of Austin, Texas $2000.00 for illegal towing during the SXSW 2012 Music Festival in 1200 Block of East 5th Street.
Makes one wonder why any parking facility owner, such as the Benton Family that owns 20 Austin-area McDonald's locations would use a dishonest towing service that has been fined thousands of dollars in fines for illegal towing practices. Some of their drivers are outright thieves, fired by other local towing companies.
watch the TDLR Commission meeting:
This company makes the growing list of Southwest Tow Operators member companies who refuse to obey the Texas Towing Law and the 4th time fined by TDLR.
This is why it's of vital importance to pursue criminal charges with the police agency the parking facility is located and TDLR to hold them responsible for their misdeeds.
