Unlicensed Tow Trucks Still A Problem

Over the weekend, I came upon a Dodge Dually with a wheel lift hanging under the frame. The license plate on the truck was not the required Tow Truck. When the light changed, I drove by slowly and didn't see any marking that would told the company, nor did this truck have the required TDLR registration number on.

Yesterday, I phoned a good friend, Mr. Don Vara with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation, to inquire about if all towing type vehicles had to registered with his agency. The answer yes, this truck should be registered, but it is not registered, yet taking consumers vehicles without their knowledge.

Still, there are unlicensed tow truck and wrecker drivers harming consumers daily, all over our state.
