I have been a part of this community all my life. For 15 years I’ve attended “Music in the Park,” at Sylvester Park. I have always parked in the parking lot behind the Department of Personnel building.
On July 15, when I returned to my car after the concert it had been taken. We looked around the lot; in the bushes was a sign for Summit Towing.
The law (RCW 46.55.070) states if a vehicle is parked in a parking lot for less than 24 hours (mine was 10 minutes) that there must be signs posted at each entrance. There are three entrances to the parking lot, two have no signs, and one has a sign that is on the ground surrounded by bushes. There are two signs, 2 feet tall, next to the dumpster; if a car is parked next to the dumpster the signs are not noticeable. Why aren’t there any towing signs at all three entrances as prescribed by law? And why aren’t the signs that are placed on each side of the dumpster, higher than the level of a vehicle?
If you were towed unfairly, file a complaint with Better Business Bureau.
