Well the person that did listed the ordinance covering this topic so it appears that you are mistaken.

Whoops.

I can't find an ordinance for trespass towing for Mooresville which does have their code online. The towing ordinance in Charlotte isn't as much about granting rights to tow but instead restricting predatory towers. That probably means that if your landlord grants you agent status (or better yet has it in your lease) then you should be able to tow them.

I think checking with the town police would be good to see if there's some rule that isn't clear. Next I'd find a big towing company and call them to see if they do trespass towing.

These guys have a parking lot service and an "A" from the BBB and will provide free signs:

Thanks for the thoughts.

The sign is only $30, so I'll give it a shot.
But these Sweepstakes people are a very...umm, special kind.
I thought those places were supposed to be in dutch with the government? Can't you call the cops and tell them an illegal operation is being run there?

You could also report the sweepstakes , as they are operating illegally on borrowed time. Several have been raided and shut down after the new ruling took effect.

I follow the rules and will never park there, but everyone else ignores and get away with it.

This is something you just have to live with. Most stores have signs, most people avoid it, and go about their business. Good luck!
Actually, that's incorrect. Handicapped Parking is enforceable in all areas as long as they are in compliance with NCGS 136-30. That means the pavement has to be marked (Striped, lined) accordingly and the proper signage has to be present.

The officer may have made the statement because the spot in question doesn't meet the guidelines or it may be that he just doesn't know the law like he should. 100.00 - 250.00 penalty for the infraction.

The officer can also have the vehicle towed without having to conform to the local ordinance if it is in violation of NCGS 20-37.6

I'm lost. What part of the quote you were replying to was incorrect?
