Massive Towing Scam - College Station/Bryan - Every Vehicle Owner Towed Entitled to $1936

There is very few legal towing sign posted in the College Station - Bryan area at parking lots vehicles are being towed without the owners or operators consent.  The majority of towing signs have the wrong layout as the top portion of the sign must be white background.  Several towing companies are using towing signs that fail to state, "Unauthorized Vehicles Will Be Towed at Owners or Operators Expense", as shown below.

Everyone towed by Tribble & Sons Wrecker Service with this sign posted above should skip the towing hearing and file a statutory violation lawsuit against the parking facility, as they will recover the civil liability penalty, $1000 plus triple what you paid to get your vehicle back. 

The filing fee for the statutory violation is the same as the towing hearing and will allow you to recover more money than just the tow fee and filing fee.

In these types of cases, nobody has lost when the required statutory text is missing from the sign or the sign layout is wrong or the wrong International Towing Symbol is used on the sign.

Other towing companies are using towing signs with the wrong layout, as the very top portion of the sign that contain the legal towing symbol must be solid white all the way across the top of the sign, something the sign below lacks.

The sign posted below is a legally worded sign with the correct layout as required by State Law, Occupations Code 2308.302.

An example of what someone can expect to recover from a statutory violation hearing is, $1000 plus three times the total charges paid, say $300 and the filing fee of $36, $1936.00

It's also important that anyone towed from these parking lots in the College Station - Bryan area file an online complaint with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations against the towing company, as a noncompliant towing sign posted with vehicles being towed, will get the towing company fined $1500 a vehicle.

For anyone who needs an attorney for this type of civil suit who will take your case on contingency, call either Ryan Dunn at 512-236-1114, email him with a picture of the sign posted at where you were towed from or Chad Lampe at 817-704-3984
