My question involves towing laws for the State of: Florida
Last year in June my car was towed from my apartment complex where I live. when I recieved the call from my neighbor at work that they were towing my car. I called the office and asked why the car had been towed, and they stated due to the tag being more than 30 days expired. The car had no flat tires or broken glass. and they told me that by the tag being more than 30 days expired, it was still considered abandonment on the property. I also asked why there was no notice or sticker placed on the vehicle. They stated, once they are in contratct with a towing company, they have the right to pick up any vehicles that are abandoned on the property without notice. The towing company stated the same. I have never heard of such a thing. And now that i have told them that I am going to pursue legal matters. They have changed towing companys and have begin to place stickers on other peoples cars. And the towing company has since then placed a 2,000 dollar collection on my credit report. Is this something I should persue????
