I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that you were towed.
If you arrive to request the vehicle out of impound within 24 hours from when it was towed, they're only allowed to charge one day's storage. Cal. Civ. Code, Section 3068. If the car winds up in the tow yard for more than 24 hours, then they can charge you for any part of a calendar day it's on their property. So it all depends on what time you get there.
