Tow Trucks – Dangerous Driving Can Kill

Last night in Austin, local police officers were chasing reckless driving and speeding tow trucks towing vehicles at extremely high speeds down Interstate 35. One specific company, Assured Towing, had a wrecker driver stopped after being clocked at 81 in 60 mph speed zone. I even spotted this idiot and several others while out for my Saturday night cruise along our roadways looking for drunk drivers, stalled vehicles, stranded motorist, debris in the roadway etc. I must give credit to the 911 call takers I spoke with last night, as for their calmness, in our conversations, two suspects were apprehended for fleeing the scene of an accident, 3 tow trucks were stopped for moving violations (high dollar tickets) and 2 drunk drivers were stopped, arrested, then transported to Jail.

The importance of citizens reporting suspicious activity, working with the law enforcement, can go along way in making our communities a safer place to live.

With Interstate 35 being a major shipping route for the drug cartels, there is no telling who is sitting in a vehicle parked along the freeway. Good Samaritans get killed everyday just offering help to people, as I am not going to be next Good Samaritan killed, as told by local police, “Call it in”.
