What to do if you get towed in Boston

Here’s a reminder: Boston has stringent parking laws.

1 annoying thing: After an evening out with friends, a Boston driver may find that their 2007 Ford Focus isn’t where they parked it.

Perhaps that Bostonian thought to sneak into a spot not far from a fire hydrant.

Of note: This story isn’t at all inspired by what I went through last Friday afternoon, just so you know.

How to survive: If you can’t find your car, the first step is to check whether it’s been towed.

Search the city’s online towing database, which is kept up to date with license plate numbers for all impounded vehicles.
