    Because only the government would think it makes sense to charge a person a towing fee for being the victim of a crime.

    Florida woman who was set on fire now hit with fees to have cars towed from gas station - U.S. News

    Lame

    Who should pay the fees? The gas station? This is what normally happens in this case. She will sue the man for damages, the car towing will be included and she will win. The end.

    Proof that even State level gov'ts are only there to f*ck you then charge you for the hotel and condoms.

    No lube, not even a kiss goodbye!

    That's because the Towing Company is giving kickbacks to the local gov't as a condition of getting the contract in the first place.

    But that's a Conspiracy Theory.

    The same thing exists with the contracts for Intersection Red Light Ticket Cameras. Time the yellow light of a ticket camera intersection sometime.

    But that's another Conspiracy Theory.

    Of course you can sue people in jail or awaiting trial. Happens all the time. And who says he's broke? She rolled up in a mercedes, he rolled up in a Jag. They are ex's who have a 4 year old together. The story doesn't make him sound broke, it makes him sound rich. I'm sure the Jag would cover the cost of the towing. So yes, he can most definetly afford to pay.

    He rolled up in a Jag she cosigned for, or did you miss the part where they bought it together?

    So people should sell their cars to cover the cost of Towing?

    If you think they have money they should pay no matter right or wrong?

    I did miss that part, because its not in the article. The article states that her car has both names on it. Meaning he co-signed for her, not the other way around.

    Even then, you show no sign that the man is flat broke and couldn't afford to pay the $300 plus. You seem to be assuming that he has no money in any bank account, his car has no equity, and he has no job, so he has no final paycheck coming. Those are quite a lot of assumptions on your part.

    No thats not what I said at all. What I said was, if you are sued, and you lose, you should have to pay. If that involves selling some of your stuff, because you have no money, then that sucks to be you.

    Not that any of that really matters now anyways as he is standing trial for attempted first degree murder. He will never see any of his stuff again. He should just decide to be a good dad and give it all to the mother of his child anyways, who will be most likely raising their child from here on out.
