I met some folks after work on Friday at Harry's, a bar and grill on Overland in front of the Majestic theatre. Parking is limited in the little strip mall where harry's is located, so people tend to park in the dirt lot behind the mall. See dirt lot below, with the theatre behind it.
The owner of the Majestic really gets his knickers in a knot over this parking, - I guess he owns the dirt lot - so he has a towing service come drag off the cars every couple of hours. In the picture above, the two skid marks are from a car that was towed away. The pic below is of the car being picked up.
When the tow truck showed up, patron/parkers ran outside and moved the cars away, into a more distant lot. Except the one poor guy who got towed. Some folks had seen the car driver come into Harry's for a drink, then walk over to the Majestic to watch a movie. So the Majestic had one of its customers towed.
If you look closely at the pictures, you'll see a white pole in the middle of the field, with a Don't Park Here sign. It's so far from the edge of the lot that it realy isn't noticible, and doesn't deter parking.
Scuttlebut at Harry's was that people who park at the Harly dealer get the same treatment. Word was that the majestic owner doesn't like motorcycles, so he torments the bike shop, and that his religion forbids alcohol, so he tormets Harry's patrons. Who knows? All in all, just a really cheesy way to behave. I expect the guy who got towed was freaked out when he looked for his missing car, seriously inconvenienced, and out around $150 (plus the price of the movie).
