DENVER (KDVR) — Have you ever parked somewhere you swear there were no towing signs? But then you show up an hour later and your car is gone. Now, you have to pay hundreds of dollars worth of fees for the towing company to transport and hold your car.

The term is called “predatory towing,” and it happens more than you think.

State Sen. Julie Gonzales championed the “towing bill of rights,” which was signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis in June 2022.
