Can a tow company charge as much as they want to tow your car if it is parked illegally?
My car was parked illegally in a parking lot and when I returned it was not there (two hours had passed). I had to go about 2 miles down the road to pick it up late at night and I was charged $185 and my fiance's uncle was charge $235. When asked why they charged so much they replied "we can charge as much as we want because of 'idiots like that'" referring and pointing to a black man who was angry about his car being towed. (Which I believe was a racist comment, but that's another topic.) Anyway, I was wondering if there is a limit on towing a car 2 miles away from where it was. I was parked in a condo parking lot.
