    Smile Is it Legal to Tow With a Person Inside the Vehicle

    My question involves towing laws for the State of: California

    Let's say you're sitting in your car parked in an empty business lot bothering no one and reading a magazine. A tow truck pulls up. Can he tow your car away with you sitting in inside behind the wheel? What will happen if you simply start your car and drive away before even he tries to hook it up to the tow truck?

    If he drives away, he drives away. If he is trespassing on property where he should not be, the police might be called as well.

    No, they are not going to tow the car with someone inside. But, they might call the cops to address the issue, or, they might just "boot" the vehicle as an alternative.

    Best bet, don't park where you are not supposed to park.
