I feel as though this last answer in completely bias towards the towing companies. This has happened to me over the past weekend. I as well had a tow company on the way, and was informed by the officers that IF the car was still driveable , which it was I would be able to drive the car away, unfortunately that was not the case. They towed my car after hours, as the tow company was closed but still performed the tow. And was unable to get my car until Monday morning, which resulted in my losing my job by having no transportation. I feel as though I was lied to by the law enforcement!
