  1. 45 days at the impound at $50 a day! That’s a $2250 storage fee plus the towing! This dummy deserves it!

    1. Would impound fees fall on the driver or who the vehicle was registered to?

      I know for a fact he doesn’t own a vehicle

  2. Impound fee fall on the registered owner of the vehicle unless the owner and the person driving have agreed that the driver will pay for the impound.
