Re: Do You Request Highway Patrol Assistance ? ? ?

Recommended Posts

Regarding the tower critically injured today from, Baltimore's, Blake's Towing, that on-highway response was in the center divider adjacent to a high-speed carpool lane. This is a common scenario that's extra dangerous to work. And, knowing the dangers that exist in today's world of distracted driving, at what point do you, or should you, call the highway patrol for on-scene assistance? I realize that towers don't want to bother the highway patrol nor do they don't want to wait for their arrival, but should towers use the assets they have as a manner to increase on-scene presence? I'm a firm believer that any vehicle that's situated in live-lanes, center dividers, even gore points, NEED and SHOULD HAVE the assistance of the highway patrol. Thoughts? Comments?     R.
