My question involves towing laws for the State of: California
There was a Persian new year party today and I parked my car at a parking on the side of the road. The parking lot was big, next to a 76 gas station and a Firestone. I looked and I didn't see any sign about the place being a private property. It's next to a park and I thought it is part of the park.
When I returned I didn't see the car, rushed to the police officer and said my car is stolen. Then he went and I found out that the are belongs to Firestone and they have asked my car to be towed. Their Parking is big and they were just towing the first two rows closest to their shop.
I took photos, the signs are not visible and are not installed in a place to be easily visible by drivers. I warned a few people about the issue and they moved their cars. After that Firestone people saw me around and started to notify people. I have the video of a few people that said, there is no sign or warning and that they are not customers but came to the event in the park.
I obviously lost a few hours of my time, and I have contacts of a few people that their cars were towed. The towing company was aggressive and I believe they were towing cars only when this event is on every year or when there is an event in the park.
There was no park towed when I was in the parking area, I stayed for about two hours. How and what's the best way to approach this? I have videos and photos.
