how many cars have been taken throughout utica this way and the owners never recover their car and it is stripped and sold and also scraped with no tittle people have no clue how easy a tow truck company can get the car sold for scrap and receives the permission from the state to do so

Dr. Angela Elefante referred questions to her attorney because she own the property but she is not the renter the renter labor ready rents the property and they didn't put the sign up the renter has the right to let anyone they want park there not the owner of said property because the owner rented it.. and the renter could have given people permission to park at labor ready... and the tow truck driver has no idea whose car has the permission and who doesn't

Don't always believe what you see on the News! All the information they gave on there was not all FACTS!!!! The chief of police LIED. My buddy used to have a towing business and he said that if this "Taurisano's" business is obviously private and theese tows were not for the utica police then he can charge as much as he pleases! And the man saying he's parked there for years that doesn't make it right. That like saying a Rapist has been raping for years and didn't know it's wrong BULLSHIT!

Yorkville cops had my car towed years ago. West End Auto. They damaged the entire front end of my car. Looked like they tried 100 times to get it hooked up right, scratching the car and ruining the front bumper. They are the WORST ever.

and they can tow the car to another town and or even another country without even leaving a sign saying they towed it right if he is a private business then how does he have a no parking sign with his business name on but no phone # or address a private tow cant advertize and or have their name in the yellow pages as a business

his has nothing to do with WEST END AUTO!! You my friend are a liar there was never any report of any damage of a vechile or this would have been taking care of personally by the owner, he is a stand up guy and you are just making things up, probably one of those people who stuck them for money, i am sure....and it was probably a DWI or a hit and run deal on your part for the yorkville police to have it towed...I am sure it was something illegal

Regardless of the person who owns it it's a business and he should be more professional then he is and be sure he will be audited for taxes rather quickly for telling people they can only pay with cash and he won't survive long

I learned a few years ago about Utica's tow truck mafia when they came and hooked up to my disabled vehicle after I had called a local outfit I know from using them previously.This cigar-smoking pedophile wanted cash and would not accept my valid credit card and would not tow to my home where my cash was so they towed it to their "car jail" where I had to go by cab to pay their $75 extortion fee and pay an additional $75 for them to tow it to my home. Even the police officer at the scene said something like "They won't take a credit card? Do they know its the 21st century?" This is just one more reason why I love Utica,not.

A bill sponsored by 8th District Senator Fuschillo, S2360, pass in the senate on Oct. 21, 2008 prohibiting practices of predatory towing. The law states that towing companies can not split proceeds with lot owners (according to one UPD captain this is happening); lots must be conspicuously marked; towing companies mus accept at least two major credit cards ( one being a bank card);signage must include address were vehicle is impounded.Violators can be prosecuted and face fines up $1,000.00 dollars per incident.
If you are a victim take legal action now. Don't let this go unchecked. It is wrong and endangers unsuspecting people and impedes economic growth of our community.

Request a written receipt, with business name printed on it. They have to provide reciept...it is the law. This is reportable income.
