Q: Car was towed from private property

My vehicle was towed from a shipping center in new castle County Delaware, I was parked there overnight but there were no signs indicating any enforcement. There were only fire lane signs

It would appear that parking in a fire lane in PA is a towable offense. Don't need additional warning signs about towing. Probably Tow Company called by Mall Security.

Yes----quite often in matters involving accidents and damage to property, a ticket is issued based on the law enforcement officer's investigation, which does not include his witnessing any portion of the accident/collision.
