Towing cars to maintain integrity of parking spots is legitimate of course, but making everyone pay with cash so the impound company can presumably doctor their books and avoid paying taxes is transparent. Those sleazy companies may not be breaking the law demanding $150 cash payment for towing your car two miles, but they are taking advantage of cash-strapped captive students and their families. In today’s society, we can use a debit or credit card to buy a $1 soda pop, so why can’t we pay an impound company an unexpected $150 charge at midnight? It adds insult to injury. Can’t someone do something about these companies’ unscrupulous policy?
