    5 freakin days on the street. I think that is excessive by any standards.

    Personally i would be thinking civil suit against the towing company for unecessary damage to the vehicle though.

      That's a bloody disgrace!

      All towing companys should have towing dolly's that they put under the rear wheels of 4x4 cars....

      However that said, I have seen several 4x4's getting towed here in SF by their front wheels. This causes HUGE damage to the transx box of any 4x4 with rear wheels rolling whilst fronts are not moving.

      I can understand that the couple may have been waiting for the parts to arrive, however I would have had a local Audi garage come collect it with a set of loaner wheels.

      Either way, this should now be a lawsuit against the towing company and the city council for the damage caused. These damn city councils need to learn that they simply cannot treat peole's property with such little respect.

      Step forward Mr lawyer!

          Seriously, they tow cars in DC for no reason. A buddy of mine had his car towed, and left a block from where he parked it. He thought it was stolen, so he called the city to report it when they told him it was towed to a location one block away from where it was originally parked. They couldn't offer him an explanation as to why.

            I would have been PISSED if that was my car! That was just retarded how they tried towing it off. Couldn't they have even BOTHERED to notify the car owners in a situation like this before even attempting to tow it off?

              That is absolutely ridiculous. What a fiasco.

                Perfect example of lack of communication between city authorities.

                  True. I went into the city to do some of the museums and the car got towed. What a nightmare!

                    If you go on a weekend, just park in the "permit" spots on the west front of the Capitol on either side of the reflecting pool, instead of trying to find on-street parking. All those spots are open to the public on weekends... doesn't seem like they're ever full, either. There are metro stops nearby on the north and south sides (Navy Mem/Archives to the north and Fed Center SW to the south), and the museums are only a modest walk away.

                    I very, very rarely drive my (4WD) vehicle into DC unless I'm having it valet parked, or we're parking in the Capitol permit spots on the weekend.

                        I've had that happen. They often will do that to move you out of the way of rush hour traffic if youre parked on a main thoroughfare, say if you are parked on Constitution by 4PM, they will just tow you up onto the curb and ticket you.

                          Just another reason to Metro in, if you can.

                            Driveways in D.C. Now a No-Parking Zone

                            http://www.wtop.com/?sid=1659296&nid=695

                            Beverly Anderson is mad as hell. She just started to get tickets for parking in her own driveway.

                            That's right. The District of Columbia is ticketing people who park their cars in their own driveways.
