Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the Tow Notice Act. Provides that if a vehicle owner or other legally authorized person in control of a vehicle is under a written agreement permitting a vehicle to be parked on the property, the property owner or other person in lawful possession or control of the property, or his or her authorized agent, must provide personal notice to the vehicle owner or other legally authorized person in control of the vehicle prior to requesting that a commercial vehicle relocator remove the vehicle from the property. Requires the property owner or other person in lawful possession or control of the property, or his or her authorized agent, to make all reasonable efforts to provide the vehicle owner or other legally authorized person in control of a vehicle personal notice prior to removal of the vehicle. Requires that personal notice must be provided at least 3 hours prior to the removal of the vehicle. Provides that a vehicle owner or other legally authorized person in control of a vehicle that is aggrieved by a violation of the notice provisions may commence a civil action in the appropriate circuit court not later than 2 years after the date of the vehicle relocation and may recover from the property owner or other person in possession or control of the property, or his or her authorized agent, damages resulting from the violation, including, but not limited to: towing charges and storage charges accrued in connection with the relocated vehicle; loss of the vehicle; and costs and attorney's fees. Provides that the Act applies only to vehicles that are operable.
