    TowBot got a reaction from Dat1 in From TowTimes.com - Be Like the Donkey   
    We are all facing really uncertain times – times that are going into the history books, for sure. The moral of the following story is a great one:
    One day a farmer’s donkey fell into a deep well. The animal cried pitifully for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, the farmer made a decision: The animal was old, and the well needed to be filled in anyway. It just wasn’t worth trying to retrieve the donkey.
    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.
    Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked into the well and was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel-full of dirt that hit its back, the donkey would shake the dirt off, and take a step up.
    As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped over the edge of the well and happily trotted away.
    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up.
    Shake it off, and take a step up.

    TowBot got a reaction from rreschran in Vote on Waze Slow Down-Move Over Warning   
    The towing community has an opportunity to weigh in on an initiative involving the GPS navigation platform Waze to warn motorists to slow down-move over due to emergency responders – police cars, tow trucks, ambulances – up ahead.
     
    As of press time, nearly 3,000 votes had been cast, with voters leaving over 160 comments in support of the measure. Waze has over 100 million motorists-users worldwide.
     
    “Lives are being lost at alarming rates and any support of the Move Over laws are greatly appreciated,” stated the initiative, which originated at Speed’s Towing in Portland, Ore.
     
    With nearly 50 tow operator U.S. roadside deaths in 2019 by Tow Times’ count, the towing and recovery industry is looking to reduce those numbers. The federal government’s General Accountability Office (GAO) also is studying how to limit towing fatalities, which a study published last year by an affiliate of the Centers for Disease Control showed are 15 times higher than other industries.

    TowBot got a reaction from mushspeed in From TowTimes.com - A Word of Thanks   
    Being an employee in the towing and recovery industry is tough, not only on tow operators, but all employees and their families. This is especially true during the holidays, with missed parties, church services, children’s concerts and plays, dinners, family time and more. The stress level is right up there, along with a “Grinch” attitude. That describes me right now.
    But I know I need to take deep breaths, adjust my attitude and pull myself together for this special time of year. Even with all of the things I deal with each day — bills that never seem to end, trucks that always need something repaired, increased costs of just about everything, shopping, baking and the list goes on — I need to take time to say a word of thanks to my employees and their families. I count on them every day, and they need to be able to count on me to keep it all together.
    A word of thanks to anyone who works in the towing and recovery industry for taking that one last call, working on holidays, and the many sacrifices you make.
    And I hope that, like the Grinch, you all find the true spirit of the season.

    TowBot got a reaction from Kat in From TowTimes.com - Towing Operator Credited with “Miracle”   
    A tow truck operator in Baker County, Fla., is being credited for a “miracle” after rescuing an elderly woman stranded in her car that had plunged into a creek. According to a news report, operator Chris Miracle was responding to a call at approximately 2:15 a.m. when he saw flashing lights in thick brush and returned to investigate.
     
    He found the woman sitting in the car after it had left the roadway and crashed. Miracle, an employee of his family’s business, Miracle Towing and Recovery, and a volunteer firefighter, called for rescuers and winched the woman’s car to the roadway. She was later released from a hospital reportedly doing well.

    TowBot got a reaction from brian991219 in Geri Roskopf's Blog- So Much More than Writing Traffic Tickets   
    I had the opportunity to participate in our local police department’s Citizen Police Academy. The Academy was created to give the public a working knowledge of their department’s organization, personnel, policies and procedures and as an opportunity for the police department to build a rapport with the citizens they serve.
    All participants had to complete a questionnaire and application. Participants in the class I attended had many diverse backgrounds. Each of us was excited to learn more about the police department and how, after our graduation, we could be an advocate for them throughout the community.
    To say I learned a lot would be an understatement. There were 11 sessions and each one was not only educational but was hands-on. The presenters were professional and eager to share their expertise in the departments they worked in. All questions were answered with diplomacy and patience.
    We got to meet the police K-9 and his handler, learn defense and arrest tactics, firearm safety, visit the fire department and meet detectives specializing in areas such as drug enforcement, crime scene investigations and crisis negotiations. We even were able to try our hand at using radar and dusting for fingerprints. The technology used in investigations today was fascinating.
    The men and women working in police departments face many dangers each day. While they may know they are being sent to a traffic violation, they are unaware of exactly what situation they will encounter when they get there. While a situation may seem routine, they will often need to rely on their extensive training to assess and hopefully diffuse a situation – not unlike incidents the towing industry faces daily.
    Yes, the members of any police department do much more than write traffic tickets. Members of the towing industry work with law enforcement every day, and I know my experience and what I learned going through the Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy has helped me become a better citizen, and an advocate for the police department and all they do.
