  6. It could be an agency requirement. The CHP says towers cannot photo any sdene without prior permission from the officer on scene. It's not an unreasonable policy. R.

  9. I agree. You never know what is going through a persons mind today, and or what their intentions are. Once you have clients in your vehicle, you should use due diligence to ensure that they are transported to their destination in the most safest, direct route possible. Driving down the highway is perilous enough. Stopping on the roadside not only heightens your chances for a collision, but subjects everyone to the unknown dangers of the subject you are engaging.
  10. We can do most of what we need while LE is finishing their side of things. We are almost always there before we are needed.
  11. There are not many images of tow shows as there was in the past. Why is that?
  12. How SAD and this could have been one of us this nut job shot when we went to tow his crap. ANGRY
  13. Are there any better pictures of the tie down. What are the odds this driver did it right? What If the vehicle had come off the deckand it could have hit another vehicle? the outcome would have been much different. We should all take note!!!
  14. Was the seminar well attended, the video didn't look like many people there when the doors opened. But, I found an outside training event that was active. Looked HOT
  15. For us HONK Ranks #1 at the current time. We all know that can change, we hope it holds.
  16. Thanks for Sharing Honk has worked well for us here. Can't say the same for AGERO/SWOOP SWOOP just had to say it twice.
  17. First there has to be more to this story, there always is... Would have never gotten that far and the driver full of rage would have gotten back in his car. Both of us would have been on the phone to the police at the same time. Only I would have had the video evidence of the attack.

  19. Fire and rescue crews worked to free a woman trapped in her vehicle Friday after a car and truck collided on Lisbon Street. LEWISTON — At least one person was seriously injured Friday night when a car and tow truck collided head-on Lisbon Street. The crash was first reported at about 7:30 p.m. Nearly an hour later, rescue crews were struggling to extricate a woman from her mangled vehicle. The vehicles collided on a stretch of Lisbon Street beneath the turnpike overpass, a short distance from North Lisbon Road. Witnesses reported the tow truck, which had a car strapped to its bed, burst into flames after the impact. A video from another driver’s dash cam shows the tow truck heading outbound on Lisbon Street moments before the crash. The truck is seen weaving into oncoming traffic several times. Police shut down a long section of Lisbon Street while fire and rescue crews attempted to free the woman in the car. Traffic was detoured in several areas, including down Westminster Street on one end and Old Lisbon Street on the other. The street beneath the overpass was jammed with emergency vehicles, including firetrucks and ambulances. At about 8:25 p.m., it was reported that the woman had been freed from her vehicle and was being taken to Central Maine Medical Center. No further information about her condition was available. Police were expected to keep part of Lisbon Street closed as a reconstruction got underway as part of their investigation. RESOURCE LINK
  20. HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Fists went flying during traffic on Highway 6 near Bellaire Boulevard and it was all caught on camera. It happened Friday afternoon: a wrecker was blocking part of the road when an impatient passenger got out of the car and confronted the tow truck driver, according to a witness. Video shows the much smaller man being knocked on the ground before getting up and trying to pick up where he left off. A female driver then enters the picture and breaks up the fight. After that, the wrecker driver is seen pulling off and the driver and her passenger also departs. ABC13 reached out to the woman but she has not responded. RESOURCE LINK with video

  23. I assume you found their site for information? http://www.truhitch.com/ I work on a fleet of utility equipment. When any of our heaver units requires a tow, such as our IH Paystar 5000 mounted with a 170 foot reach Bronto Skyreach, the towing contractor always arrives with their Tru-Hitch. The all wheel drive Paystar is very top heavy an just makes scale.
  24. I was called for a 13,000lb forklift leaning on a house, I brought my 1981 Kenworth W900A with a Holmes 750. Found an all terrain forklift had fallen fully extended into a house on a steep side incline. Structural steel was damaged when the forklift went over. I rigged to the boom of the forklift with a continuous loop in a choker fashion to prevent shifting as it came upright, rigged directly off the mast for a side pull with the outrigger down. Blocking front & rear of the low side wheels on the lift & parking brake set I winched it upright, as it was clear of the building & upright I had the operator start the machine & lower the boom as I kept tension with the winch.
