Question for Oregon Tow Companies

Recommended Posts

Also, other States that are decriminalizing hard drugs such as Oregon is doing.


Are you seeing an increase in traffic accidents as a result or is it about the same.


Our number of accidents have increased steadily without decriminalization.


I would suspect there may be an increased number of incidents raising the dangers for tow truck operators.

Crashes by alleged medical marijuana in California are on the rise, but California offers NO exception to a motorist under the influence of MJ. I don't know of a source for hard-numbers counting crashes and the precentages caused by drivrs and MJ.


For the states of Hawaii, Colorado, Washington and Oregon, these states have legalised laws which, in the long run, puts towers at risk.


For interesting read, here's a link of a report by the National Highway Safety Administration that was sent to Congress July 2017.
