Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. I am sorry to say but there is not. The Officer has the discretion, when making a DUI arrest, to allow the vehicle to be picked up by a family member or third party. Even though it was your car and you were letting your friend borrow it, there is no law, code, statute or regulation which says the Officer has the allow the owner to retrieve it, prior to having it towed, within a certain period of time. When loaning out your vehicle, to do so subject to the law, which allows a vehicle to be towed upon a DUI arrest.
