New Predatory Towing Legislation Signed in NJ

According to this Associated Press story, New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine signed legislation to protect the public from predatory towing companies on Wednesday, 10/24.
The law, called the Predatory Towing Prevention Act, sets maximum towing fees, prevents towing companies from offering kickbacks for information about illegally parked vehicles and requires tow operators to be registered with the state Division of Consumer Affairs.

NJ law may ban Predatory Towing
A friend of the blog wanted to remind readers of a recurrent problem in New Jersey “Predatory Towing” She recently explained that she was out late and parked in the CVS parking lot in 1300 Paterson Plank Road Secaucus, NJ 07094 ,and her car was towed by Atlantic Towing 230 W Forest Ave Englewood, NJ 07631(201) 567-5330 and charged $250 to get the car and when she objected she was told she had to wait till Monday to get the car ,the car was damaged durring towing and articles were missing . The blog has checked and found that there are no “no parking signs” in plain view and the land lord of this strip mall seems to be instigating the towing.

FYI the towing company in Englewood is related to the owner of the secaucus plaza property.
