VIRGINIA BEACH - It only takes a few minutes of parking in the wrong lot before a tow truck could come and haul your car away. The question is:  are towing companies playing by the rules?

Each city in Hampton Roads has an ordinance governing when towing companies can take your car and what they must give you when they tow it away.

A 13News Now investigation went undercover at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to test the system and see if our car would get towed.

Find out the facts about towing, including all the rules and what you can do if you think you've been wrongfully towed, in our special report Monday night at 6 on 13News Now.
