smoking pot

As if the public has enough to worry about with drunk drivers causing havoc or death on the roadways in Corpus Christi, Texas, now they must keep an eye out for tow truck drivers under the influence of drugs that make for a deadly mix.

Sanford’s 24HR Wrecker Service has been fined by the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations for failure to implement a Drug and Alcohol Testing Policy for their tow truck drivers and vehicle storage facility employees.

We have fielded calls from the public reference drug use at their storage facility as some have left with the experience of being stoned after being overcomed with a cloud of marijuana being smoked in their presence while paying out their vehicles.

No business owner in their right mind should trust this company’s tow truck drivers towing their company vehicles, as a driver under the influence of crack cocaine could lead to the damaging of the vehicle leaving your company with a destroyed vehicle.
