LAS VEGAS - Last week's 8 on Your Side report on confusing parking restrictions at one Strip parking lot prompted swift changes.
As 8 on Your Side first reported, ‘No Parking' signs in the parking lot between the Riviera and the Peppermill confounded many motorists and led to the towing of several vehicles.
Since the story aired, public officials have moved quickly to fix the problem. The towing company in question had 90 days to change its signs, but the company didn't wait 90 days. It acted immediately. The parking lot now includes new signs.
Callers, meanwhile, inundated the 8 on Your Side hotline with towing questions and complaints after the original story aired.
If you think your vehicle was unfairly or illegally towed, you can take steps to fix the problem. First, retrieve your vehicle from the tow lot. It will cost money, but if your vehicle was wrongly towed, you may be able to get part or all your money back.
