Towing Fiasco

One of the worst feelings is going to find your car and not having it be there. It is even worse when it is towed from your own place. Getting to the impound on Michigan Avenue was a fiasco. The gatekeepers at my place were telling me to look for a run down area and those in the Dearborn area were telling me to look for a shady area. The problem is that I find all of Detroit – the good and the ugly – all beautiful and the “run down” areas did not strike me as any different from what I usually see in and around the city.

    Why was your car towed?

    Was it a private company that towed it? I’d be more nervous that my gate operator couldn’t give me an exact location of who they contract to tow cars. Or that they contracted someone in are area they found “run down”.

    Do you by chance live anywhere near Wayne’s campus? Near the beginning of classes last year my car was towed TWICE – both times for non-permit parking – when my permit was stuck right in place. I think they just get tow happy for a few weeks and grab whatever car is closest.
