DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Drivers were left stranded in Dayton Friday after the city towed their vehicles for unpaid tickets.
Twenty-one cars were towed as part of an ordinance the city passed over the summer. The law allows the city to tow cars after two unpaid tickets for red-light, speed camera or parking violations.
"I didn't know that I had tickets," said Melissa Titus. "I was parked on East Third St. and the next thing I knew I was being towed."
Melissa Titus was one of many drivers towed who were faced with the task of retrieving their car over a holiday weekend. City offices were closed on Good Friday.
According to officials, drivers can pay their fine(s) at the Montgomery County Jail. It is open 24-hrs. Cash, check and money orders are the only methods of payment accepted.
Drivers will then need to get a release from the Dayton Safety Building. The building will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 8 am- noon. Drivers should take the release to the towing company to retrieve their car.
Varnado said on December 8, just four days after the truck stop's opening, her fear became reality when a hired armed security guard shot and killed a trucker. As of now, no charges have been filed as police continue to investigate.
