Concord, NH asked in Small Claims for New Hampshire

Q: Here it is. At 3 am Saturday morning my vehicle was towed. I didn't have sticker on was charged 280$ how can I fight it?

I am a legal resident of this place. There is a sign saying unauthorized vehicle will be towed at owners expense. I did not want to put sticker on my bumper of my new car because of paint. Ive paid the money because I have no choice I need my car. Losing my car costed me several hours of overtime at work.

A: This is not a civil rights issue. If it wasn't registered then the owner of the property has rights. You should have notified them about your car being on the property without an inspection sticker. If you can prove they knew it was your car and you were there legally you may have an argument, but some of these lots are patrolled by tow companies that look out for these types of cars and remove them.
