[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Tuxedo Park at time of adoption of Code 2-21-1990 by L.L. No. 1-1990; see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I. Amendments noted where applicable.]
A licensed tower performing towing service for the Village or called by a police officer shall perform on a rotating basis. When the owner or driver of a disabled vehicle indicates a choice of a specific licensee, that licensee shall be called, and no wrecker shall be assigned from the rotating list. No licensee shall respond to the scene of an accident except upon notification by the police officer in charge in police headquarters or upon request of the driver or owner of a disabled vehicle.
Motor vehicles not involved in accidents but which are otherwise disabled and which are disrupting the flow of traffic and whose owners do not otherwise request assistance from a licensee, or motor vehicles which are to be impounded for other reasons, shall be towed away by licensees from the nonaccident roster on a rotating basis. All vehicles directed to be impounded by a police officer will be towed to the place of impoundment designated by the police officer.
Nothing in this chapter shall prevent the owner, lessee, agent or driver of a vehicle which is disabled from calling a wrecker of his choice to remove his vehicle; provided, however, that such vehicle is removed within 24 hours.
The Police Department shall have the power to require wreckers to remove vehicles where:
There is obstruction of a public right-of-way or private property.
A vehicle has been vandalized or presents a fire or safety hazard or an attractive nuisance.
A vehicle is parked on any road or street during snow removal operations.
