Tow away parking signs
In the state of California it is permissible to have a car towed if it is on private property without the permission of the owner. The following comes from the DMV: Removal From Private Property 22658. (a) The owner or person in lawful possession of private property, including an association of a common interest development as defined in Sections 4080 and 4100 of the Civil Code, may cause the removal of a vehicle parked on the property to a storage facility that meets the requirements of subdivision (n) under any of the following circumstances:
(1) There is displayed, in plain view at all entrances to the property, a sign not less than 17 inches by 22 inches in size, with lettering not less than one inch in height, prohibiting public parking and indicating that vehicles will be removed at the owner’s expense, and containing the telephone number of the local traffic law enforcement agency and the name and telephone number of each towing company that is a party to a written general towing authorization agreement with the owner or person in lawful possession of the property. The sign may also indicate that a citation may also be issued for the violation.
(2) The vehicle has been issued a notice of parking violation, and 96 hours have elapsed since the issuance of that notice.
(3) The vehicle is on private property and lacks an engine, transmission, wheels, tires, doors, windshield, or any other major part or equipment necessary to operate safely on the highways, the owner or person in lawful possession of the private property has notified the local traffic law enforcement agency, and 24 hours have elapsed since that notification.
(4) The lot or parcel upon which the vehicle is parked is improved with a single-family dwelling.
(b) The tow truck operator removing the vehicle, if the operator knows or is able to ascertain from the property owner, person in lawful possession of the property, or the registration records of the Department of Motor Vehicles the name and address of the registered and legal owner of the vehicle, shall immediately give, or cause to be given, notice in writing to the registered and legal owner of the fact of the removal, the grounds for the removal, and indicate the place to which the vehicle has been removed. If the vehicle is stored in a storage facility, a copy of the notice shall be given to the proprietor of the storage facility. The notice provided for in this section shall include the amount of mileage on the vehicle at the time of removal and the time of the removal from the property. If the tow truck operator does not know and is not able to ascertain the name of the owner or for any other reason is unable to give the notice to the owner as provided in this section, the tow truck operator shall comply with the requirements of subdivision (c) of Section 22853 relating to notice in the same manner as applicable to an officer removing a vehicle from private property.
(c) This section does not limit or affect any right or remedy that the owner or person in lawful possession of private property may have by virtue of other provisions of law authorizing the removal of a vehicle parked upon private property.
(d) The owner of a vehicle removed from private property pursuant to subdivision (a) may recover for any damage to the vehicle resulting from any intentional or negligent act of a person causing the removal of, or removing, the vehicle.
(e) (1) An owner or person in lawful possession of private property, or an association of a common interest development, causing the removal of a vehicle parked on that property is liable for double the storage or towing charges whenever there has been a failure to comply with paragraph (1), (2), or (3) of subdivision (a) or to state the grounds for the removal of the vehicle if requested by the legal or registered owner of the vehicle as required by subdivision (f).
(2) A property owner or owner’s agent or lessee who causes the removal of a vehicle parked on that property pursuant to the exemption set forth in subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (l) and fails to comply with that subdivision is guilty of an infraction, punishable by a fine of one thousand dollars ($1,000).
(f) An owner or person in lawful possession of private property, or an association of a common interest development, causing the removal of a vehicle parked on that property shall notify by telephone or, if impractical, by the most expeditious means available, the local traffic law enforcement agency within one hour after authorizing the tow. An owner or person in lawful possession of private property, an association of a common interest development, causing the removal of a vehicle parked on that property, or the tow truck operator who removes the vehicle, shall state the grounds for the removal of the vehicle if requested by the legal or registered owner of that vehicle.

SIGNS par excellence manufactures and sells outdoor sidewalk signs to small business owners looking to advertise their products or services. Putting a sign out on the sidewalk can get people to walk in off the street by attracting impulse buyers. A sidewalk sign that is easily visible to passersby can be a practical and affordable investment for even the smallest of businesses.
The New York State Small Business Development Center studies show that businesses that use signage purposefully placed outside on the premises, increase their sales and profitability. Use your sidewalk sign to tell people what they will find if they come inside. Make a good first impression by keeping the messages you post straightforward and to the point. Your message will be more readable if you leave some blank space around the text. Adding a border around the message is another way to help people passing by your business to read your sign faster.
A sidewalk sign with changeable lettering allows a business to change the message on the sign. If this particular type of sidewalk sign doesn’t work for you, other sign designs include white or black marker boards and poster frames. Whether you want to let potential customers know that you are lowering prices or offering a special deal, sidewalk signs allow you to change the message as often as you need. In addition, many styles of sidewalk signs are double-sided, giving your business exposure from two directions.
Convenience/PortabilitySidewalk signs are constructed from durable, waterproof materials that hold up under all kinds of weather conditions. Signs made from high grade, fade-resistant plastics can last for years. Some models are designed so that you can add sand or water to the base to allow the sign to withstand wind. Most signs require little maintenance and fold flat for storage when not in use. Generally, sidewalk signs are lightweight, making them easy to move around or transport to other locations. You can even move the sign indoors. Available in a variety of styles, many A-frame signs are designed with a handle at the top for easy carrying.
Inexpensive AdvertisingA sidewalk sign lets the public know your business is there and often draws people who normally would not come in. After investing the initial cost of the sign, which can be as little as $100, this simple yet effective marketing strategy offers small businesses inexpensive commercial advertising. You only pay for the sign once, yet it continues to advertise for you each time you display it. Design your message so that it's easily readable. Effective advertising takes into account letter size, spacing and colors. Proper use of color, contrast and white space will allow people to read your sign faster. Avoid cluttering your sign with words. Use contrasting color combinations rather than similar colors to increase visibility and attract attention to your key message.
A-frame signs or sidewalk signs are a excellent way to grab a person's attention. You can inform your customer with your sidewalk sign by displaying information on these small billboards. A-frames can be custom and specific to the kind of client you are trying to attract. Some sidewalk signs just need to tell the customer one thing. WE ARE OPEN! Some store fronts are dark and may not have the type of signs that help the customer know if they are open or not. You might just put your logo on the a-frame with your store hours and maybe a website or a list of services. For many businesses this maybe all you need.
Restaurant A-frame signs need to have the daily special written on the a-frame with chalk. Any time you have information that needs to change on a regular basis the sidewalk signs need to have a way of changing that information quickly and efficiently. Chalkboards and dry-erase panels are a good way to do this.
Sidewalk signs are a great complimentary sign to the rest of your sign program. But sidewalk signs should be able to stand alone since they might be down the street pointing the customers in the right direction to your store. Make sure your sidewalk sign is nice and clean. Broken a-frames will broadcast to the world that you are not taking care of your signs so how might you take care of your customers? A-frames get beat up. They fall down, sometimes they are heavy and they get dragged from place to place. You want to allow in your sign budget money to have your signs replaced or refurbished from time to time to make sure they are looking sharp.
There are many options out there for sidewalk signs. They can be tall, short, cut to a custom shape, they can have wheels, bells and whistles. If you’d like to have a sign professional chat with you about your sidewalk sign solution please call SIGNS par excellence sign company
