Towing companies engaged in law enforcement towing, private property impoundment, or any other type of towing that results in the impoundment of vehicles, should be familiar with the towing lien laws in their respective states.  A lien law allows a towing company to maintain possession of an impounded vehicle until the towing and storage fees are paid. The lien law also sets forth the procedure for disposing of an unclaimed vehicle.  Typically, if a vehicle is not claimed, the towing company can sell the vehicle at auction to recoup those fees (or at least part of them). But what do you do with the personal items in an unclaimed vehicle that is going to auction or the crusher?

Summertime is rapidly approaching. That means hundreds of thousands of tourists will be descending upon the 63 beautiful national parks located across the nation. In addition to the national parks, there are 360 other areas in the national park system, including national monuments, parkways, battlefields, historic sites, and recreation areas. Most of those tourists will be traveling by car or RV, and many of those vehicles will suffer breakdowns or accidents while in one of the many park areas.
