Cars Towed Near New Carrollton Metro
About a dozen inauguration goers face some bad news when they return to the New Carrollton Metro station today: Their cars have been towed.
Several motorists, frustrated with clogged ramps to the Metro station this morning, pulled over, locked their cars on a grassy shoulder and hoofed it the rest of the way to the Metro station. Maryland State Troopers were not amused, especially after the make-shift lot grew to about 70 cars.
Troopers went closer to the station and made intercom announcements reporting that towing would commence if people didn't move their cars, said Sgt. George Todd, who said Metro also made such announcements. And many heeded them.
"We did good with 60 some cars," Todd said.
About 12 motorists didn't make it, though, and wreckers were called in from
Charley's Crane Service, in Landover -- the phone number there is (301) 773-7670 -- and Walkers Towing in Bowie, reachable at (301) 249-6213.
"We've got eight of them," Bill Waggoner, a manager at Walkers, said this
Both Walkers and Charley's close at 6 p.m.
