DALLAS (AP) - Dozens of people attending the Texas-Oklahoma
football game at the State Fair of Texas say they were lured into
what they thought were legal parking lots and then found their cars
towed when they returned.
Car owners told a Dallas television station that "no
parking" signs were put up while they were gone Saturday.
A Dallas Morning News blog reported online Sunday that drivers
told their reporters that they'd paid $10 to park in the various
lots near the fairgrounds.
"They were flagging us in, it looked legit," Rachael Escamilla
told the newspaper.
Tara Fults told the newspaper when she and her friends returned
to where they'd parked, they notice a "no parking" sign nailed to
"We would have seen it and everyone else would have seen it,"
The drivers lined up outside Lone Star Auto Services to pay
nearly $200 to get their cars out of the impound lot. A Lone Star
employee who would not give his name said no one was available to
comment on Sunday.
