“How long must an officer wait after ticketing to tow?”

“Dear PoPville,

Recently my boyfriend parked my car- and forgot to read the signs. The car was towed and re-located, and a ticket was issued for a parking infraction as well as for the relocation. Looking at the tickets it was a total of 8 minutes between the initial ticket and tow ticket. This, to me, seems totally unreasonable. Is there a law on the books that states a timeframe that must pass between the original ticket being issued and a tow taking place? If so, as my boyfriend is not the owner of the car, would we be able to fight this?”
