  1. CALL TO ACTION TOMORROW, SATURDAY - 10.17.20: Light Up The Sky For Fallen Tow Operators On 10.16.20, we received the heartbreaking news that the towing industry lost yet another operator due to a motorist failing to slow down and move over. Roberto Garcia Jr. a beloved operator from Express Towing out of Selma, CA , was assisting a motorist on the side of the freeway when another motorist failed to heed the Move Over Law and struck him. It is our mission to promote safety and motorist awareness regarding the law. We celebrate “Move Over Day” each October with tow truck processions and events across the state, this October we cannot even do that. But we can stand together to raise awareness and let all of those connected to fallen operators that we are here for them. We ask that this Saturday night. Wherever you are, that you help us LIGHT UP THE SKY for Roberto Garcia Jr. and for all the tow operators we have lost to these senseless tragedies. Please get in your truck and turn on your lights at 9:00 pm Saturday Oct 17th. If you have “Slow down, move over” signage, please display it proudly. Post and send to us so we can share the message with all our members while we have this night of solidarity. We appreciate your dedication to the towing industry. It is our sincere hope that increased awareness will result in a decreased loss of life. Thank you for serving your communities, and stay safe. -Quinn Piening, CTTA President

  5. Tow Truck Drivers to Lead Funeral Procession for Slain Driver The funeral procession for a tow truck driver killed when a driver drove off the road and struck him will be lead by his colleagues. Timothy Williams, 55, was killed on February 7, 2020 while attempting to load a vehicle onto his tow truck. Christopher Rice was driving a vehicle that left the roadway and struck Williams while he was next to the truck, killing him. A driver with Affordable Towing, Williams was beloved among his co-workers both with Affordable Towing and other companies. Several of those drivers will be leading the processional for Williams after a Saturday memorial. The memorial will take place at noon at Freedom City Church, located at the corner North Broadway and West Division. The procession will then take place from the church to Williams’ final resting place at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens. According to organizers of the procession, light and medium service trucks should stage at the Cox North Hospital parking lot. Heavy trucks and rotators are to park in legal parking areas along North Booneville south of Division. Drivers who wish to honor Williams by participating in the procession can contact Mike Phillips at Affordable Towing at 417-848-9764 or Ruben James Carver at 417-599-6731. https://ozarksindependent.com/2020/02/14/tow-truck-drivers-to-lead-funeral-procession-for-slain-driver/?fbclid=IwAR1m8iBkiMifoZMSVlYirvoHjXss-8fLX3gHIHpkT_gDfMYhSJUOUlmva4I
