Sadly, you either pay for towing and impound or else taxes have to be raised to pay for it. Either way it gets paid for by someone.

While true, there is no reason for the rightful owner to be paying for the others mistakes.

$1:
When police took possession of the stolen vehicle, a digit in the Vehicle Information Number was entered incorrectly into police records, meaning officers were never able to identify or contact Stenhouse about his motorcycle.

"When I learned the bike had been found, I went to police headquarters twice and had them look up the VIN. Each time, they said they had no record of the bike."

The motorcycle sat for four additional days in an impound lot, and was towed to a new lot, incurring costs all the while.

After multiple calls and emails, including one from CBC, the London police agreed they made a mistake and have since offered to pay $200 to help cover some of the charges.

CBC also contacted Ross's Towing in London. After reviewing the bill, the company said Stenhouse had been overcharged $125.

Owner David Ross said the motorcycle was accidentally impounded as a car – a price difference of about $30/day – and has offered to repay the difference.


Why both mistaken parties refused to act until it was made public is beyond me. If they had dealt with the owner in a professional manner from the onset, there wouldn't even be an article.

I guess it is really that hard to just say, "sorry, I made a mistake."

How about having the guy who stole the bike and left it there pay for it?

But if they said that they might get in trouble. People may start looking into things. Insurance usually pays and they would rather pay fees than purchase price even depreciated. Makes you wonder.

Criminals don't pay that's why prices go up. Someone has to pay the losses
