Reforming Towing Fees and Policies for Stolen Cars

towcar.jpgHaving your car stolen is a painful process, and the city is not making it any easier on victims by making them pay large fees when these stolen cars are towed. These fees are set in a contract between MTA and Auto Return -- the private entity that runs the tow yards. This contract is up for renegotiation in 2015, so I have called for an oversight hearing now to explore how MTA, SFPD and Auto Return handle stolen vehicles and what we can do to make this process less onerous on victims of car thefts. One idea is to explore longer periods of time for victims of auto theft to be able to reclaim their cars free of charge.
