Text Before Tow Program Application

The information below will only be used for the purpose of verifying you are the registered vehicle owner or lessee. The SFMTA will not release this information or use it for any purpose other than to administer the text warning system and provide updates related to this program.











By participating in this program, I agree to the following rules and regulations:

1) This service only applies to parking more than 72-hours, blocked driveway, construction, and temporary no-parking (special event or moving truck) zones. Peak-hour tow-away lanes, hazards, yellow or white zones and other violations are not included.

2) This program is only intended to provide notice if your vehicle is about to be towed. You will still receive a citation for violation of parking regulations. 

3) A tow truck will be dispatched in conjunction with the text message notification. The timeline to relocate your vehicle cannot be guaranteed and is dependent on the travel time of the tow truck which could be as few as five minutes. Once a vehicle is hooked up to a tow truck the tow cannot be stopped.

4) Harassment of SFMTA or its contractor staff will result in immediate termination from the program and may result in criminal prosecution.

5) THIS PROGRAM IS PROVIDED AS A COURTESY ONLY. THE SFMTA CANNOT GUARANTEE THE DELIVERY OR RECEIPT OF TEXT MESSAGES. FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TEXT MESSAGE CANNOT BE USED AS A BASIS FOR A REFUND CLAIM OR FOR THE RELEASE OF A TOWED VEHICLE.
