TowStop creates conversation between driver and officer to curb likelihood of expensive parking violation

We’ve all been there: walking to the location where you parked your car only to find its been removed and in replacement sits a hefty parking ticket. What if you could prevent your car from getting towed before it actually happened? TowStop is a solution to protect your car and wallet in the future: a motion-activated alert button to notify drivers of impeding fines before they happen.


In Hamburg, Germany, 40,000 vehicles are towed each year and Founder Daniel Kalliontzis and his car contributed to the statistics. The case of expensive tow-zone tickets is not confined to Europe and consequently, Kalliontzis created a way to minimize the financial burden of tow-away accidents worldwide.
