Oklahoma Seeks to Eliminate Tow Storage Charges for Crime Victims

Recently published stories indicate that crime victims have gained a sympathetic ear with certain regulators at local and state levels regarding payment of towing and storage fees after a stolen vehicle is found.

The argument goes that crime victims shouldn’t have to pay such
fees. And in Oklahoma, for instance, the Legislature is weighing Senate Bill 256, which would eliminate tow storage charges for such crime victims – with the caveat that towing companies would be able to seek restitution or payment from the district attorney.

If there’s one thing that gets tow company owners and operators riled up it’s the thought of

nonpayment of services.
