Can my car be towed if accused of parking "too close" to another vehicle and subsequently "blocking" an individual from exiting his car?
I was threatened by a 70+ year old male to have my car towed if I were to ever park "too close" to his car again. I took pictures of the cars and assuredly concluded that I had parked with more than enough clearance to allow this individual to safely open his door and leave his car. I tried explaining this to him but he responded with verbal assault, and assured that he'd be the baddest SOB I'll ever meet. Not to be presumptive but this individual appeared to be rather affluent and wouldn't have hesitated to take legal action against me had I pursued the argument.
Potentially your vehicle could be towed in the future if it is parked too close to another vehicle or inproperly. However, the authority to tow a vehicle parked on a public street would rest with law enforcement who would be summoned to the location where the alleged improperly parked vehicle is parked, who would deterimine if there was some sort of a parking violation, and if so, cite the owner of the vehicle and call in a tow truck.
From what you have written, the altercation just between you and the seventy (70) year old man would not have warranted the seventy (70) year old man to call a tow truck and legally be able to have your car towed.
