What are the laws regarding towing cars?

I believe my car was towed illegally.

Vehicles can be towed for a variety of reasons, depending on the jurisdiction. If you feel that yours was towed illegally, contact the police and file a report. You may have to file a Small Claims action to recover costs if the police validate your claim.

Your car may only be towed if it is illegal parked either on someones private property or in a clearly marked "No Parking Zone". If you can prove this was not the case you can sue for the cost to recover your vehicle.

If your car is left somewhere for too long it can be towed. If park your car someplace for too long and there is a sign that says that it will be towed, or if you are on private property they are allowed to tow it.

This varies according to the town, county or state you are in. You can inquire with your local police or court. Local statutes(RSA's) are often online or at your library.
