I live in an apt complex. Our car was towed last year because we had 1 tire over the other side of the red line into the fire lane- we never received a warning- and we had never done this before. I now see red stickers from the police dept on cars that violate parking rules inside the complex- either parking in the fire lane or in handicapped spaces. Someone in my complex told me it is private property and our car was illegally towed. I would like clarification on the fire lanes inside apt complexes- I read about those scooters-why are those exempt from police intervention due to their presence on "Private Property" vs. this issue?

Fire lanes are covered by city ordinance, and are therefore enforceable on private property. Scooters that are operated on private property are not subject to traffic law. Apartment complexes often affix red warning stickers on vehicles when they are in violation of parking regulations. The complexes also have the authority to have vehicles removed at their discretion for the same violations.

If you have a traffic complaint, contact dispatch at 972-335-5505 or you may contact me at 972-335-5502.
