Type of Suggestion:
Script

Explanation of your Suggestion:
The addition of private impound lots.

The ability for registered and legit towing and roadside company's to purchase a property that contains a private impound lot. This impound lot would act separate from the main impound lots where as, if the said towing company impound the vehicle at their "owned/private" impound lot the towing company can set the fees for that vehicle. The owner of that vehicle than gets a notification of which impound lot his/her/its vehicle is located at and they have to go to that specific lot to retrieve their vehicle. The company that owns the impound lot will than receive the amount that was paid by the owner of the vehicle. This implementation would differ from the current system where the company's who impound said vehicle get the full benefit from the fees paid vs the towing company's getting a set amount that differs from the amount someone pays to have their vehicle released. These Impound lots would also utilize the "Roomate" system where the owner of the lot could add employees or drivers who would be the only ones that would be able to impound vehicles at this lot.

Another great benefit to this system is the roadside company's that factions have contracts with can trust that the faction vehicles that are being towed or impounded are in the possession of that company and is safe and contained within their lot, rather than a random impound lot and or the scrap yard. This would also create an awesome interaction between faction members and these business.

At the same time of the drivers/employees being able to set the "Release fees" there would need to be a system put in place to regulate the amount set to avoid the system from being taken advantage of such as a vehicle release fee being set as $500,000. There would need to be fair middle ground between the company's and population that would still allow competition.

This would allow company's to be paid properly for the towing and impounding of vehicles, adds more interaction between players and roadside company's rather than the standard "pickup and impound" that we are all use to now.

These impound lots could also offer stocked items such as repair wrench's and jerry cans.

Why are you suggesting this?
More interaction between Roadside company's and the population.

I don’t see why you can’t already do this. Tow cars to your lot and put them inside of a car showroom or warehouse for example, put out tweets that you have there car and if they want it back from your impound lot they need to pay said amount.

Seems like it would be more of a hassle to figure out where your car is impounded at.

@Jake

That’s a way of doing it but in the past doing that we have found people would sooner abandon the vehicle and wait till restart to get it back or simply wait till the person holding it to go afk or sleep and simply take their vehicle back.

At the same time if a company impounds a vehicle than they have to leave or go to sleep for any reason than this suggestion allows the person to retrieve their vehicle even though nobody from that business is awake at that time and that business will still be paid, very similar to how shops in silverton work.

And as for having to find your vehicle a person could revive a “text message” or notification as to where their vehicle can be picked up once impounded.

That sounds like FailRP to me. To me it seems like we are taking a huge step away from player based economy with all of this NPC assisted roleplay lately, especially on the company side of things.
