Just had to have a WRX towed out of my spot.

I know I shouldn't feel bad but I do. #whitepeopleproblems
#coolstorybro

If it wasn't such a nice car, this would not have been an issue...

If my rx7 doesn't park next to my 330, it gets lonely.

I'm not parking the rx7 there until tomorrow, give them some time to cool down and think it was the nightly patrol... And I've got cameras on my balcony already pointed at my parking spots, but I've thought about that good sir.

Was it a repeated incident? It's fair to at least give a warning the first time.

This is the first time, but I've had these spots for 2 years. I didn't want to wake up the complex to find out who did it, there are signs all over the carports about reserved parking, it's a nice place so I guess I could have given them a break but the rx7 is a vert (not trying to replace the top because of break-in) and I'm just an asshole anyways...

I left at 2pm this afternoon, so it wasn't like I was away for days.

You paid for the spot. It's your spot. The shithead shouldn't have parked in your spot.

Did you have to pay for the tow truck? Or the owner has to pay when they go pick it up from whereever it's at.

My Ride: A Car
I have had to call the police before because people parking in my spot even though I have 3 spots. One in front of my house and 2 behind. I was waiting for landscapers to arrive because our backyard was getting redone. I go to drop my wife off at work and kn my way back to meet the scappers I get a call from them. Someone had parked in the back two spots almost sideways. WTF? Get home and no idea whose car it is. Call the cops. He provided the owner a nice $100 ticket. Apparently they have been seeing lots of people do this. They drive around and find empty spaces at people's home and park there assuming they wont be returning for awhile. All this to avoid paying parking meters or garage fees. Even though the meter across the street from my house is $1 an hour and the garage isnt much more expensive. People gonna people.

While I'm fully understanding of your reasoning for having it towed and right to do so as they are your spots that you've paid for/had for two years; I would've have left a note if this was a first time thing but that's just me. Have you seen the WRX there before? If not it might've been someone visiting and wasn't aware that their were paid and reserved spots. However if that isn't the case and you have seen the car there plenty of times/know they live there then they should be aware of policies.

Either way don't lose sleep over it, having your car towed is a good learning experience to know where and where not to park.

Good for you. No one should take your spot, that you paid for (serious).

Did you know about your/landlord's/business' liability and exposure to legal action by the person whose car has been towed in Texas? Something to watch out for.

Citation

Most people in Texas have NO clue this is happening, but lawyers are hopping all over it... And some towing companies are in full-on panic mode. Never mind the expense of changing ALL their signs... they also have the financial hickey they can face as soon as people start discovering this little wrinkle...
