Houston City Council tweaking towing ordinance

If your car is towed in the city of Houston, you'll no longer have to go as far, and perhaps, not have to pay as much to get it back.

In the past, wreckers could take a vehicle to a distant shop, which would then charge high fees. There was little the city could do since they were located outside the city limits.

That's all changing soon. Houston City Council tweaked the towing ordinance. It requires all towed vehicles to stay within the city limits.
