Tow truck drivers and towing and recovery operators; requirements; penalties. Creates a civil penalty of $150 to be paid into the Literary Fund for any tow truck driver or towing and recovery operator convicted of improperly towing in Planning District 8 (Northern Virginia). The bill exempts tow truck drivers and towing and recovery operators in Planning District 8 from any requirement by a towing advisory board for written authorization in addition to a written contract in the event that a vehicle is being removed from private property. The bill requires that a tow truck driver in Planning District 8 immediately notify the animal control office in the locality from which the vehicle is being towed if the vehicle is occupied by a companion animal. The bill limits the membership of a local towing advisory board to only representatives of local law-enforcement agencies, representatives of licensed towing and recovery operators, and one member of the general public and requires the chairmanship of any towing advisory board within Planning District 8 to rotate annually between board members who represent a licensed towing and recovery operator, a local law-enforcement agency, and the general public.
