..and all this bs prior to ice bowl at rosie

I saw three get taken out at last years Ice Bowl.  If your tags are expired; get them renewed or find an alternate way to get to Rosedale on the 25th and 26th.  They know we will be out there and the park will be overflowing with potential.

when I park at rosedale park, I assume now that the authorities ARE out to get me. as an old school American peace veteran, my car is my freedom of mobility, for some it is their living or their home or their prized possession. at least by making your voice heard, the wyco hall can look into any kickbacks from the tow company and resume fair practice in that deteriorating region of the metro. park rangers should be conducting horticultural tours or cleaning restrooms in addition to their vehicular inspections.

Hi Jamie, I have answered your real life question. Answer mine. 4 years ago my 27 year old daughter was hit in Kansas City, MO. The other person said it was their fault. They didn't have proof of insurance and when she looked their tags were expired. She called it in and the police said get the make and model and license plate number and bring it in beacuse there were no injuries. She only had liability insurance because that the most she could afford and the least she had to have to still be LEGAL. She was out $1200 and lost her, freedom of mobility, her prized possession, and made it hard to make a living. Why does she get screwed just because they shouldn't look for people with expired tags in crowded placed. Like apartment building, parking lots. etc. What should be done, nothing.

teater - same thing happened to me and I had awesome insurance, but trying to recover the $1000.00 deductible was fruitless, even though allstate said they would subrogate the claim against the uninsured. legal processes are certainly frustrating, and I blame myself for not nipping on the heels of the douchy driver out there. so my response to your daughter's plight would be keep fanning the flames of the legal process, because when the embers die, the fire is forgotten. I am glad that the guilty driver in your case still gets to keep his vehicle, and he should be reminded to pay up the costs he is responsible for. sounds like the embers are dead in your case, but it's not too late to complain to wyco sheriff about injustice, illegal seizure, and the senseless killing of buzzes at rosedale park. silence in this case is not owning up to the gas, and soon the methane will permeate all that you wear and you will never acknowledge the stench.

barry - so let our daughters get screwed or be a captain of genocide, I can't believe there is not an option between those two

FWIW, I thought the thread had potential and could not stand aside idly and allow it to just be 6 posts basically telling the OP he should have known better.

Cabin fever!

If one is properly insured (w/ proof) and pulled over for 32+ day expired tags...is there a citation AND a tow?  Or, just a citation? 
IFF the latter, then a 'moving violation' receives a lighter penalty than a non-moving/parked violation.  An ironic discrepancy if so.
Enshrine hallucinations...PULL!!

Indeed, it would be interesting to know if this is the case. Seems unfair if that's the way it works. This alone might validate this request to petition LEOs to rethink this practice of towing unattended cars for such violations.

Is it considered abandoned if it is unregistered and parked in a public place?  Could be why its towed and not ticketed.

..and all this bs prior to ice bowl at rosie, I will gladly play a different course, if not just to reduce the massive damage to the course from high traffic.

Despite all this fantastic discussion taking place, this is the most important disc golf related statement.  rosie needs a big long break from golfers.
