My question involves towing laws for the State of: Michigan
Today I parked in the visitor section of a apartment complex. It specifically said visitor parking so I assumed it was fine to be there. My friend (who lived there) met me by my car and we went to get some food. I came back and my car had been towed. This is how they tow cars at that complex. They had one worker for a tow company in a truck watching for people to park. Then if they went across the street their cars were towed. I went in and talked to the manager and they said that starting this year they were towing people for walking across a street because kids were parking there to go to class. I do not think this is legal. I had to pay 140 to get my car back in addition to walking 7 miles then paying $25 for a cab back.
This happened in Kalamazoo Michigan and I wonder if I have any legal recourse. This happened to multiple people not just me. Was it really legal for them to tow my car in this circumstance?
