3Ts ~ Ticket, Tags, and Time


Every day and across the United States cars are impounded for reasons not related to criminality or public safety. Studies have shown that up to 25% of the cars in California, for example, are towed because of unpaid parking tickets, a vehicle registration that has expired, or for parking in the same spot for more than 72 hours.


In San Francisco 50% of cars towed for these three reasons are never recovered. The owners simply abandon them. On average it costs about $1,000 to retrieve your car after paying the tickets or renewing the registration and then paying the tow and impound fees.


32% of Americans run out of money prior to their next paycheck according to a recent survey conducted by a survey fielded by Salary Finance after interviewing 2,700 adults in the United States working at companies with more than 500 employees.


Millions of cars have not been recovered not because they were not wanted but because the owners could not afford to recover them.

Individuals who lose their car are more likely to lose their job, destabilize their family, and become dependent on the government. Trained and experienced employees not showing up for work and being fired is not in the best interest of the business community.
