TDLR's Advice Resulting in $10K Judgements Against Their Licenees, Tow Companies

The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations (TDLR) continues to tell tow companies and consumers Texas Towing Compliance (TTC) giving them incorrect information reference nonconsent towing, but the Courts are finding them guilty handing down staggering judgements worth thousands of dollars.

My opinions are based on what STATE LAW says, not some interpretation of a towing organization's attorneys.

More and more JP's around the state find TDLR's version to be highly inaccurate, especially when it involves statutory language in quotes.

But then again, TDLR has no liability, even after giving the wrong information and then they are baffled at the thought they cannot change statutory language to appease their favorite trade organization, Southwest Tow Operators.

Motorists should continue filing complaints against tow companies and vehicle storage facilities, but if you want your money back from an illegal tow, an unauthorized drop fee or even overcharged, your best bet is Texas Towing Compliance.

With Texas Towing Compliance' new website, you can have a live chat about your towing incident and get in touch with dedicated attorneys who have a proven track record of getting your back plus more.

Just remember, if you get a letter from TDLR after you have filed your complaint stating insufficient evidence to forward your complaint to investigation, call Texas Towing Compliance, as our towing hotline is answered 24HR a day, 7 days a week.

After revealing the tow signs not being compatible with the changes in Texas Towing Law, Occupations Code 2308.301 and 302, the number of tow victim calls has quadrupled. So far this week, all 68 tow victims were put in contact with TTC prosecutors who have filed civil suits against landowners, tow companies and property management companies for statutory violations.

So, if you have been towed after September 1, 2013 from a public or private parking facility and the tow sign states "Towing Enforced at All Times" in the red background directly below the tow truck symbol instead of only "Towing Enforced", your due a huge payout.
