Pelham police to tow vehicles at owner's expense

The Pelham Police Department announced Thursday it plans to tow abandoned vehicles blocking roads. Wrecker fees will be charged by the individual towing companies.

Police said if your vehicle is or was on Highway 11, Highway 31, Highway 52 East or West, Highway 119, and Highway 261, and was blocking traffic, it is likely it was or will be towed.

The City of Pelham said wrecker companies are not charging fees higher than normal day-to-day towing rate. Storage fees will not be charged if owners pick up their vehicles before 5 pm Friday.
