Who pays the costs of impounding?
The owner of the impounded vehicle is responsible for towage and storage costs associated with the impounding of their vehicle.
If the owner was not the driver then the owner may seek restitution in a civil court for the impounding costs.
The owner can contact the holding yard and enquire as to how much the towage and storage costs will be for their vehicle, the holding yard will send an invoice to the owners last known address stating the total amount owed for all towage and storage costs at the end of the impound period.
Any additional days the vehicle is held in storage will be charged to the owner and must be paid before the vehicle is released.
