One less thing for you to worry about during this disastrous flood, the Louisiana State Police say that no one should be charged to get back their cars that were towed from Interstate 12. Flooding and subsequent interstate closures left people stranded on Interstate 12 for hours on end following the flooding throughout Southeast Louisiana.
According to Nola.com, after the stranded people were rescued, state police ultimately towed the vehicles away to clear the interstate. Vehicle owners can call 225-922-0444 or 225-922-0447 to find out how to get their cars back. But the ordeal of being trapped on I-12 for over a day appears to have been exacerbated for some people: On Facebook, people complained that some tow yards weren’t releasing their cars unless they paid. State Police say that if drivers were charged for an I-12 tow, they need to retain as much documentation as possible and state police will work to resolve any issues.
