The Utah Senate gave final passage Wednesday to a bill designed to give consumers a bit more protection against tow truck companies that charge high fees and whisk cars away quickly from no parking zones on private property.
It voted 28-0 to pass HB115, and sent it to Gov. Gary Herbert for his signature.
Its sponsor, Rep. Keven Stratton, R-Orem, earlier said it is a watered-down compromise that for now will require tow companies to accept credit or debit cards and distribute a bill of rights to people whose cars were towed. It will also require a state study of what fees are reasonable with limits possible in the future.
