Bid to ban tow-away.
A LAWYER is mounting a legal challenge against Scottish local authorities over their powers to tow away illegally parked cars.
Bunny McGeechan, 31, had to pay pounds 125 to get his Fiat back after it was towed away in Glasgow.
At the Court of Session in Edinburgh, Mr McGeechan is claiming that under the Convention on Human Rights tow-away schemes are illegal.
Last year 4000 cars were moved from the streets of Glasgow and a staggering 230,000 were booked, raising pounds 5.1million for the city council.
