AN ACT TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF TIME A MOTOR VEHICLE CAN BE IMPOUNDED AFTER A COLLISION.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition:
Deletes all of the provisions of proposed GS 20-166.3(a), Limited Fees. Adds new subsection (a), Limited Duration of Storage, providing that a motor vehicle that is towed and stored by a law enforcement agency after a collision cannot be held for evidence for more than 20 days without a court order. Requires, absent a court order, the vehicle to be released to the owner, insurer, or lien holder, once towing and storage fees have been paid. Provides that individuals or entities with ownership interest in a motor vehicle are not liable for storage charges in excess of $500.
