2. You must present identification.
3. You must sign a Permissive Form requesting removal and granting the respective tow company permission to enter your property unannounced and at their leisure for the purpose of removing the unwanted vehicle.
4. The vehicle must be easily accessible, free of junk and trash or other debris.
