Top 5 Reasons Cars Get Towed

Sharing is caring!


There are two main reasons why a car gets towed and both can be quite stressful. Your vehicle may either be illegally parked in a public area or it has broken down and requires roadside assistance in Naperville, IL. Also, a car may get towed with or without your authorization, so be careful.

If those are the main reasons, what are the other common ones? Whether you are curious about tow truck services, it has happened to you or someone you know or researching for precaution, then you have come to the right place.  


Top 5 Reasons Why a Car Gets Towed

If you get stuck in the middle of the road because you’ve run out of gas or if your vehicle suddenly stopped working, then the best option is to call for a tow truck service in Naperville, IL. However, if your car suddenly gets towed without you knowing and without your authorization, then below might be some of the reasons why:

  1.   Parking Meters

A parking meter is a machine that is placed next to a street, in which a driver inserts coins to be able to park on the space with a time limit. Whilst the law may vary in different places, your vehicle will get towed if you’ve exceeded the time the machine has given and your vehicle is still parked beside it.


  1.   Fire Hydrants

Always remember to never block emergency areas as you may put other people’s lives at risk. An example of an emergency area is parking near a fire hydrant within 15 feet or closer. Whether you are just stopping to drop off a friend, never park beside an emergency area. Tow trucks and firefighters have the authority to tow your car away.


  1.   Unlicensed

Everyone knows that no one is allowed to drive a vehicle unlicensed. However, some people still do it anyway despite knowing the consequences. If a police officer has pulled you over and found out that you don’t have a license or it’s expired, they are authorized to tow the car away. Therefore, never drive without a license especially if you’ve just borrowed the vehicle


  1.   Expired Registration

When driving a vehicle, aside from licenses, you should always bring your vehicle’s registration as officers sometimes look for it. If a police officer found out that your vehicle’s registration is expired, they will have the right to tow the car away. Before retrieving your vehicle, make sure to provide proof that your vehicle’s registration has been renewed.


  1.   Handicap Parking Spot

Parking spots that have handicap signs on them are obviously for those individuals with disabilities. And those who are parked in such areas should have a handicap placard visible on their windshield. There are only limited handicap parking spots so they should be reserved for people with disabilities.

If someone uses one without authorization, the vehicle will get towed and they may pay for tickets that could cost up to $250.

No matter what the reason why your car got towed is, always remember to follow road rules to avoid getting towed by doing something illegally. And if you ever need a tow truck service in Naperville IL, give Naperville Classic Towing a call at 630-392-6844.
