That says it all. They come around & put up temporary cardboard No Parking signs & then start to tow the cars that are parked on the street. It happens all the time & is disgusting. Any time they want to do tree trimming or construction, they just slap up signs & tow. Especially around Westwood. You have to call around to find out which lot has your car & then pay impound & towing charges. If you are out of town, you may not know for a couple of days that your car has been towed.
While I was in college my car was towed & once they dented it, but I had no way to prove the dent wasn't there before.
Nothing but a big money maker for the city.
