Ableser bill to stop predatory tow truck companies awaits governor’s signature

A bill to prevent tow truck companies from trespassing onto private property passed House and Senate today.

House Bill 2462, sponsored by Rep. Ed Ableser, D-Tempe (District 17), offers accountability and oversight for predatory tow truck businesses.

“This bill will hold tow truck companies that are not playing by the rules accountable for their actions,” Ableser said. “It is wrong for tow truck businesses to prey on Arizonans parked on private property, and this bill will hold these companies to higher standards.”

HB 2462 makes it illegal for tow truck companies to remove a vehicle on private property without permission from the property owner or authorization from law enforcement.

The bill passed with bipartisan support and awaits the governor’s signature to be signed into law.
