This issue is not a loophole, rather a requirement of State Law, that a tow sign be red and white, period. Earlier this year, tow companies were put on notice reference the change in tow signs rendering all their “Towing Enforced At All Times” tow signs illegal.
Some continued to tow vehicles knowing their tow signs were illegal, but the majority of companies had new signs made with cheap ink instead a high grade ink, and because they used cheap ink, their tow signs have faded to pink or some property managers want their tow signs the same color of the building trim.
Therefore, it’s of vital importance to take a picture of the tow sign, that is required to be posted no farther than 25′ of a public street or alley, prior to going to the storage facility to retrieve your vehicle.
Since this illegally colored tow sign is used by Creswell’s Wrecker Service in San Antonio, everyone towed, regardless the reason, are entitled to money damages and we recommend you contact the Law Office of James Meyrat at (210) 735-9911, also of importance is to file the TDLR complaints after being towed, charged a drop or boot fee and issues while at the storage facility.
But the issue of faded tow signs are everywhere in Texas, so exercise your rights!
In addition, everyone towed by Creswell’s Wrecker Service in San Antonio, Texas, regardless the reason, if without your consent, from a private parking lot, your entitled to $1000 plus three times what you paid, plus if they still have your vehicle because you can’t afford the charges, and towed from Nov 5, 2016 to the present, they must release your free, or be faced with serious TDLR fines and possible arrest by the San Antonio Police Department Vehicle Crimes Unit. This is all because State Law requires private property impounds to be stored at a license vehicle storage facility and their license expired November 5th, 2015.
