Woman Googles Way Out Of Illegal $600 Tow

After this woman’s car got towed (from what looks like what might be her driveway), she did some Googling and found the towing company didn’t have a moving license at the time she was towed. She also found the company hadn’t notified the city of the tow, as required by law. After complaining to the Texas Department of Transportation, the consumer got her car back, and the $600 the company had charged her. Now that’s using your noodle!

UPDATE: Midas had her car towed from her driveway because she bounced a $39.50 check for a state car inspection.
