WALL TOWNSHIP - The department said Monday that it will accept claims from motorists who were stranded "due to circumstances beyond their control."

Many drivers were stuck in the snow last week as a result of the blizzard and forced to pay large amounts of money if their cars were towed.

Assemblyman David Rible and Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini have asked the Consumer Affairs Division to investigate complaints of towing companies charging outrageous fees during the weather crisis.
