My question involves towing laws for the State of: California
Does a local neighborhood HOA have the power to initiate a tow at will from a public street? I came home tonight to find a homemade printout from the HOA on my windshield, warning that my car has been reported to the local PD as a 'suspicious vehicle' (even though it's been parked there on and off for weeks) and that it will be towed at my expense. I am not a member of this HOA, but live in the next street (this is the closest street parking available to me). This neighborhood is not a condo, but a residential neighborhood where people park on the streets all the time.
The car is properly registered/plated with no violations on record.
Is this legal? Note that the car gets driven/moved every other day (definitely within 72 hours).
