    Post Violator Towing

    In some no-parking zones, the signs read:

    "Violator Will Be Towed At Owner's Expense"

    Does 'violator' refer to the illegally parked vehicle, or the vehicle owner? Most dictionaries claim that a violator must be a human. Yet, a human violator is normally not towed, because it would kill that human. So, could the signs be poorly written?

    Re: Violator Towing

    You understand that the car will be towed.

    "Violators of the law will have their vehicles towed at owner's expense" is long sign.
