What happens if my car is towed?
The NSF relocates all involuntarily towed vehicles to an on-site location. Vehicles towed from areas marked with "No Parking" signage will be assessed a $10 towing fee. Fees must be paid upon retrieval of the vehicle. Vehicles towed from other areas that do not have "No Parking" signage will not be assessed a fee.
Do you have a service that will help me if my car battery is dead, if I have a flat tire, or if I locked my keys in my car?
The NSF has an on-site towing service that provides free assistance with unlock services, dead batteries, or tire changes. Should your vehicle need towed, that will be at the expense of the vehicle owner.
