01 NCAC 04A .0201 IMPOUNDMENT AND REMOVAL
(a) Any vehicle parked in violation of these rules and regulations will be subject to impoundment and removal (towed away) at the expense of the owner. Such removal shall be to a place of storage operated by a privately‑owned garage or towing service. A towing fee shall be paid to the towing service before such vehicle is released to the owner. The provision of the Code of the City of Raleigh and the applicable state law permitting such removal have been complied with in that the entrance to each parking lot contains the proper warning signs.
(b) If a call is made for towing services and the owner (or person having control of the vehicle to be towed) returns to the unattended vehicle before the arrival of the towing vehicle and the unattended vehicle is not, in fact, towed in, a service charge for answering such a call shall be paid to the towing service by the owner/operator before the vehicle can be released from custody.
