Vehicle towing

Shalveen Chand
Monday, April 14, 2014

THE towing of illegally parked vehicles recommenced last week after the Commerce Commission and the Suva City Council reached an agreement.

The towing had been suspended after the commission laid down laws on towing.

Commission chair Dr Mahendra Reddy said certain procedures should be in place.

"The vehicle is somebody else's property. There should be signs indicating that it's a towing zone," said Dr Reddy.

"The fine, where it has been towed to and who to contact in case a vehicle is towed, should be clearly shown on the notice.

"Areas have to be identified, for example, there should be no towing from a parking zone. Only cars which are illegally parked should be subjected to towing."

He said the other issue regarding towing was the fine.

"Who gets to decide what the fine is. The municipality cannot go on charging high amounts after towing away."
