Thread: Will they really tow cars parked overnight in the day lots??

    Default Will they really tow cars parked overnight in the day lots??

    3 years ago I did this one night while I stayed at camping and my car wasn't towed from the day lot. Are they more strict with that now or
    will it be okey to leave it. I need peace of mind, don't want to be paranoid the whole night and have my shit towed. Anybody did overnight on a day
    lot last year?

    Yeah I heard there were meter readers roaming the grounds at midnight checking people's camping passes even .

    Leave a note on the windshield in really sloppy handwriting that says:

    "I am really drunk and did the responsible thing and left my car here and got a sober ride home. Please don't tow my car. :-("

    You're welcome.

    On the 2013 parking map, it shows that one of the lots is day parking and companion parking. Makes the tow process a little more confusing.

    Never day parked so I don't know for sure, but when I was leaving the campgrounds last year on Monday I saw several cars still randomly parked in the day lots. There weren't any tow trucks going around from what I could see either. I wouldn't risk it personally, but then again, that's why I camp and don't have to deal with driving.

    At night I have seen tow trucks roaming but I'm still not sure if they were towing or giving lifts or jump starting, etc.

    Mornings I could see many cars that had been left overnight in Day Parking. Not sure the number that were or weren't towed, but there were cars left overnight that weren't.

    I am also curious about this. If I lose my keys on site, and am parked in VIP parking, will they tow me? Where do they tow cars to? I'm leaving a spare set at home so I can retrieve my car in the morning.

    Think about it...a tow truck driver...if he takes your car that's $200 in his pocket + impound fee's. He has a family to feed, what do you think?

    GV and crew give them the go-ahead to tow at will. GV doesn't want the cars there and the trucker makes $....add it up.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    Coachella is the best man. One year (2011?) I lost my car key and they had a locksmith on site who drove me to my car and made me a new key in like 30 minutes. They accepted AAA and I only had to pay like 10 bucks for the new key. Thanks Goldenvoice!

    Yeah right next to the camping set up they have a mobile locksmith and AAA jump start team I think.

    I noticed that last year and was like WOW handy!
