8. a. The director by regulation shall establish a schedule of private property and other non-consensual towing and related storage services for which a towing company may charge a service fee, and shall specify services that are ancillary to and included as part of basic private property or other non-consensual towing services for which no fees in addition to the basic towing service fee may be charged.

b.All fees charged for private property or other non-consensual towing services and related storage services shall be reasonable and not excessive. Such fees shall be presumptively unreasonable and excessive if they exceed by more than 25 percent, or a different percentage established by the director by regulation, the usual and customary fee charged by the towing company or storage facility for such services when provided with the consent of the owner or operator of the vehicle, or if they exceed by more than 50 percent, or a different percentage established by the director by regulation, the usual and customary fee charged for such nonconsensual towing or related storage service by other towing companies or storage facilities operating in the municipality from which the vehicle was towed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such fees may not exceed the maximum amounts that may be charged for such services in accordance with any applicable schedule of fees by municipal ordinance adopted pursuant to section 1 of P.L.1979, c.101 (C. 40:48-2.49).
