  1. Tow Times is bringing back a column titled “Good Guys.” It will share stories of towing industry members who do good deeds. I believe people in the towing and recovery industry are generous, and go above and beyond to not only help motorists, but support and raise funds for worthy causes, and become involved in supporting their communities in numerous ways. I’m looking forward to reading about the good guys, and all of the wonderful works they do. Helping others is most often done out of the goodness of one’s heart, and not for any type of recognition. As M
  2. Hino Motors, Ltd. (“Hino”) has announced that there will be a “formal pause” of vehicle production at its plants in its consolidated subsidiaries in North America; the West Virginia plant at Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A., Ltd. and the Woodstock plant at Hino Motors Canada, Ltd., until the end of September 2021. The production pause was approved “following challenges in the required U.S. engine certification testing process for new model years of the A09C, J08E, and J05E engines for North America.” Production will be paused at the two plants described above in the United States and Canada.
  3. From the Blog of Geri Roskoph: As I was reading an article on how to recognize a professional tow operator, I was struck with what I thought was an oxymoron: “Your everyday, run-of-the-mill tow operator, above all else, is a professional, and treats you with respect.” I was curious of the exact definition of “run-of-the-mill,” because the way it was used in the sentence just didn’t sit right with me. The definition of something that is run-of-the-mill is a common, everyday, ordinary item that doesn’t stand out from the rest. Something or someone who is run-of-the-mill i
  4. From Geri Roskopf's Blog: One of the greatest gifts we have is the gift of choice. Some choices are routine, and some are life-changing. We choose how we react to a situation. We choose to have a salad or a burger. We choose to buy a GMC or a Ford. We all make choices every day; some good, some not so good. In the December, 2020, issue of Tow Times, I read with interest Tim Jackson’s editorial titled, “Different, but the Same.” He wrote that no matter what country you’re in, “towing associations want to advocate for the best interests of towing company owners and operat
  5. From the Blog of Geri Roskopf: I recently had a phone call where, if I could have, I would’ve hung up on the caller. I was literally being screamed at. I’ve been in business long enough that I’ve handled these types of calls, and I’ve often found they result from a lack of understanding, or something was missed in communication. I did attempt to explain, but she didn’t want anything to do with it. I don’t like to leave a situation without it being settled to everyone’s satisfaction, but I guess sometimes you just can’t. A friend’s son – Bobby – has Down syndrome. Becaus
