Once it`s towed, you`re responsible for picking it up, paying all the towing fees, and if you don`t, that towing company can sell the car to cooperate again with what they invested in the removal,“ Anderson said. If you reach an intersection where you want to turn right or left and you are not in the right lane, you should move on to the next intersection. Then turn the right lane.
