This might be worth sharing with both companies in case they can do something to address it. I'm sure they don't like having their cars towed anymore than you do having to go through the trouble of towing them. I'm curious what it is specifically about your lot that seems to attract a lot of car sharing vehicles? Is it close to a home zone boundary? There must be something about it that makes people think it's an approved parking area. If you're willing to share the location, I could help make some guesses.

It's in the evo car share app. Just click the drop down menu, then my minutes.

There should be a slot to redeem code.

early on i talked to both companies. neither gave a fuck. what you need to understand is the car share companies make money of the cars being towed. there is an admin fee for having a car towed and all applicable tow and recovery fees are billed directly to the driver. the tow companies LOVE towing them. they always get paid, and it's never a hassle. i use drakes towing. they told me once they had 15 car2go's towed in one night... it's nothing special about my lot i have multiple drakes towing/authorized parking only signs. people are just stupid.

I do understand. All I'm suggesting is there is likely a reason why your lot attracts more than usual. The vast majority of car share users aren't as dumb as you contintue to imply and most understand the rules. Why not tell us what lot it is? At the very least, maybe someone reading this thread won't park there next time

Can confirm that most car share users, at least the ones that park by my parents' place in Strathcona, are dumb as rocks

I've seen evo's/c2g on private driveways, blocking driveways, parked on no stopping sign, parked on private business lots, parked blocking dumpsters etc.

They've also got an ongoing issue with dipshits boxing in their cars to squeeze into permit only spots, along with a couple of minor claims from one of their cars getting hit in the bumper by an evo. Funny part about that was that that particular evo driver didn't even try to run, just parked and left it. Clearly obvious from the scuff on the Evo's bumper and the matching scuff on my brother's bumper were one and the same. It's like the previous driver didn't think it would catch up to them. Hopefully Evo charged the ever living shit out of them on top the current claim against them.

As much as these idiots are cash cows for car shares, at some point, they should be banned from driving altogether.

Most of the people using the service seemingly have never had their own car so they don't understand pride of ownership.

I've gotten into cars full of garbage, personal belongings, mud caked on the wheel/console etc.

Been using both Evo and car2go recently, it's kind of a pain coming into downtown and finding a proper parking spot. Went to Zajac nights a month ago and had to park in a metered spot, figured someone would grab it before meter expired but ended up getting a ticket

Their ticketing system is good though, they just charge your account the minimum payment amount right off the bat instead of you having to deal with it

I always pre-scout parking spots especially in downtown. Pacific Centre and Gastown have lots which covers most places I go to on foot.
