NYPD Damages 5 Series BMW while towing after idiotic park job



I filmed this at the Brooklyn half marathon in Coney Island, NY, This driver thought he had parked somewhere that made it impossible to tow his BMW 5 series sedan. He was mistaken, however, and the vehicle was damaged in the towing process.

I wonder how that works with insurance and whatnot. Sure you parked where you shouldn't, but couldn't those guys just have booted it?

First,
Thanks OP for capturing the incident. It was funny.
Second,
I guess illegal parking is the normal around the region...? Who would even think of parking like That just to avoid being towed?
Lastly,
Did you see that the rear parking brakes were still engaged while it was being dragged up the flatbed?

The insurance won't be paying. It's an ugly car anyway. No big loss.

that would actually be because the car was still in park....although they probably did have the parking brake on.

got damn this is one car owner that needs prepaidlegal! LMAO!

At any rate most tow truck legalities start and ends with this motto "Owner Of Illegally Parked Vehicle Is RESPONSIBLE for EVERYTHING...."plus it is the NYPD doing their job so it would be pointless to sue "them" in court over this.

It is a 3 foot high bush pretty much..behind me was the boardwalk and the grass was a circle surrounded by those cement flower beds with gaps in between them. Evidently the car owner squeezed between this narrow opening and managed to park the vehicle there.
