ATTORNEY GENERAL HERRING SUES NORTHERN VIRGINIA TOWING COMPANY

~ Advanced Towing Company allegedly took part in “frequently predatory, aggressive, overreaching and illegal” business practices ~

RICHMOND – Attorney General Mark R. Herring has filed a lawsuit against Advanced Towing Company, LLC, a towing and recovery operator based in Arlington, Virginia. The Complaint alleges that Advanced Towing has violated Virginia and Arlington County towing code provisions, resulting in towing conduct that is “frequently predatory, aggressive, overreaching and illegal.”

 

“Virginia consumers should not have to worry about towing companies acting illegally or employing predatory, unsafe business practices,” said Attorney General Herring. “My team and I will continue to hold towing companies and bad actors accountable when they break the law and take advantage of consumers.”

 

The Complaint alleges that Advanced Towing has employed tow truck drivers who are not properly registered with the Commonwealth, implemented a practice of unsafely towing vehicles, towed vehicles without the proper legal authority, unlawfully towed police vehicles and commercial delivery vehicles like Amazon delivery vans, and failed to maintain appropriate contracts with property owners authorizing tows.

 

Attorney General Herring is seeking restitution on behalf of consumers, civil penalties, attorneys' fees, and asking the court to ban Advanced Towing from further violating the Virginia and Arlington County towing code provisions.
