Cash and coins are different.

Didn't they also get fined recently for not making change?

This is specifically where they break the law. Their policies and costs are fricking posted in the office. Any person in the world can walk up and see their ridiculous fees, that are phenomenally over the rate they are supposed to be charging. They close during the day so that they can charge more fees. They also require exact change, and refuse to give you any change back on any amount. If your bill is $201, and you only have $100 bills, you are out $99.


quote:

All fees charged by a tow truck operator for the nonconsensual towing of a vehicle from private property or parking areas shall be uniform and shall be set in accordance with rules and regulations promulgated by the Louisiana Public Service Commission. If the tow truck operator charges any fee in excess of the uniform fee, the owner of the motor vehicle shall have a right and cause of action to recover the amount of the excess fee, storage costs, if applicable, reasonable attorney fees, and all court costs.

How can they be a legit towing company if they are closed during the day?

Eta: They charge overnight fees if they pick up your car and have it for 6 hours. They also charge an after hours fee for showing up when they don't want people. They used to charge by the hour to keep your car there

Here's an idea for anyone with time on their hands and a chip on their shoulder.
You'll need two things first: a car you don't need to use for an extended period of time, and a lawyer willing to represent you for free or close to it (or, since many on here are lawyers, represent yourself).
Park the car in a lot monitored by riverside and let it be towed. When you go to pick up the car, try to pay in the smallest denomination of currency possible. (Claim it's the only way you can come up with whatever amount they require so quickly.)
If/when they refuse to take it, threaten to sue. If they continue to refuse, leave the car there and actually sue them for a violation of the towing statute mentioned earlier in the thread.
Win the lawsuit, then make it publicly known that riverside has to take your pennies (or quarters, or whatever). Encourage everyone to pay in change, with the knowledge that they HAVE to take it by order of a court.
It won't shut them down, but it'll be a huge hassle.

TL;DR - sue them and get an injunction forcing them to take change to be a PITA

The only good they can possibly do is tow a car that is stranded/broken down.

I'd bet dollars to donuts that they wouldn't touch a broken down car

They wouldn't give me 10 dollars in change once.

So I went to the bank and paid them in nickels. Thought it would be funny but it was way way more effort than it was worth
