I went to get dinner with some friends at Superior Grill off Hwy 280 in Birmingham. It was packed and there wasn’t anywhere to park. I followed some other cars to a side street next to Superior Grill. There were at least 7-8 cars parked on the left, and plenty of room to park on the right. There were no visible signs where the other cars were parked on the left, and clearly no signs against parking on the right. So I parked my truck there. There was an apartment complex at the end of the street, but neither my truck nor the other vehicles were blocking residents from entering or leaving the complex. When I came back from dinner, my truck and the other vehicles were all gone. On the side opposite where my truck was parked, there was a small sign facing the other direction, that had been blocked by the other vehicles. It left a phone number said that cars would be towed if parked there…but it was clearly not visible to me and not posted where I had parked. I called the company and they said it would cost $270 cash to get my truck back! They said the price would go up $20 each day. When I questioned why the towed my truck and the reason for the outrageous price, they said it was private property, and they were privately contracted with the apartment complex, so they could charge whatever they want. The apartment complex does not use the police to enforce towing off their property, so by using private contractors they profit from the high prices, too. The towing company they use, B & G towing, is located on the other side of Birmingham. I still don’t know how I was supposed to know not to park where I did because there wasn’t anything visible against it, and the price charged seems like a scam between B & G Towing and the apartment complex. I don’t remember the name of the complex, but its across from The Residence Inn behind Superior Grill.
