Hurry and tow cars from illegally parked spots in apartment complexes nearby. It serves as staging area till you can get them all towed to the secured lot. Meanwhile car owner has already been towed and has no idea his car is 2 blocks away at Walmart.
This is some SERIOUSLY fricked up business practice and not sure why they were just slapped on the wrist.

They used to use the Circle K on B-side for staging. I, along with a few of my friends, got our cars out for free for almost a year. They can't tell you not to get your own car if it isn't in their possession.

Right. That's the key is knowing where they are staging and you might get your shite back for free. Good stuff. They can only stop you if it's hooked up or in their lot.

Something tells me setting up a Twitter Account for @RiversideTowingWatch with folks hash-tagging would be excellent...

Somebody should get with their local BR car thief and turn them onto Riverside's staging area. If a car was damaged/stolen from the place riverside staged it before actually going to their yard...

Hide under a blanket in your car and video them towing it to the staging area.

why?

If the 1st car is illegally parked (which it sounds like they are) then what does it matter how they take the car to the lot?

If those mutherfrickers charged me $300 to "tow" my truck, they'd have a mysterious fire at their place soon after.

I thought the same thing. These people are low lives, I'm glad I don't have to deal with these fricks since I don't live in BR any more.

I was banned at the time and had LSUPHILLY72 post my case for me here just for feedback.


The night of Spanish Town Ball I was at BWW northgate with some friends. Got drunk and wanted to go downtown about 11pm. I figured I was drinking and eating at BWW the entire time surely they wouldn't mind my leaving a car overnight, right? Wrong.
Was pretty shitty practice of a place that essentially say's,
"Hey come drink alcohol and watch the big UFC fights here but you better take your car when you leave."
Boo Riverside and their clients who pay them.

However, the current downtown issue is not a problem for me. Drive up one floor and park. Signs are visible now.

If you were all serious about putting a dent in this guy's business, you would organize a boycott of the businesses that contract him.

I'm not going to eat at Zippy's anymore. Buffalo Wild Wings, either.

If you do that, and LET THESE BUSINESSES KNOW why you're not patronizing them, it will have an effect.

Tiger Nation, organize.

I don't care how much you love teryaki honey wings... this is your big chance to fight back.

The fact they deal only in cash is a MAJOR red flag. Doug Reed's anybody?
