Excerpt: Between 7 p.m. on Friday, June 24, and 2 a.m. on Sunday, June 26, Greenwood Towing Inc. built $2,700 in towing fees off a 27-house parking great deal nestled north of the Cross Avenue Market place in Federal Hill.

Safety digicam footage shows 4 automobiles were being towed on Friday night, every single at $300. 1 was released right after paying out a $150 “drop charge.” An similar amount of automobiles ended up towed and dropped on Saturday night.

Normal all those quantities above a month and just about $12,000 was picked up by the towing corporation – or roughly three instances as a lot as Bank of The us, who owned the whole lot at the time, possible manufactured on parking each individual thirty day period. Be aware that this estimate excludes the other 137 hours in the week.

Most of the motor vehicles towed from plenty in Federal Hill belong to people who are checking out community for its cafe and bar scene.

But Sam Harrington, who lives across the road from the great deal, can reel off other illustrations. Grubhub motorists as effectively as shoppers who park for a number of minutes to decide up food get towed so frequently that “you truthfully stop noticing it.”
