ok, so i got a DUI last year and didn't drive because i didn't want to get a suspended license (short version of a long story). My P.O.S. car has been in my driveway, street in front of my house, etc.. so back in December right before christmas one of my neighbors didn't like the car sitting there and called and had it towed. San Diego law says a car must be moved every 72 hours if on a public street. SDPD had no reports of any officers tagging it for possible tow, only complaints from one neighbor. So, they tow it. FROM IN FRONT OF MY OWN HOUSE. here's where it gets good.. 1. tow lot charges me $100 more than what they had told me that morning what it would cost. 2. car is not even on that tow lot. 3. car was gonna run me $600 to get it ready for smogging by 1/01/05 so i was gonna donate it rather than pay for it to be fixed. but, since it was not on the lot, i now owe another tow company. 4. Tow lot said they would "take care of it" and that was that. 5. I'm getting Lien Notices every 2 days now and they say i owe them like $1800 more. 6. I've already RECEIVED the $2000 tax write off from the company i donated it to. THEY HAVE THE CAR. IT'S NOT AT THE TOW LOT. 7. I'm about to be sent to collections by the tow lot. 8. I'm PISSED. rant over.
