Hundreds of people at the 79th annual Bud Billiken Parade found themselves without cars after a towing company, Rendered Services, allegedly posted no parking signs after they had parked and then towed them. They refuse to render what is Rendered. The company now faces an ex post facto posting case.
The citizens and businesses claims that Rendered waited until lots were almost full to post the signs at the parade started at 10 am and then towed away the vehicles. The police were inundated with calls.
In case you are wondering, getting bilked at the Billiken comes to a tune of $170 per vehicle.
