Changing Course

Beginning today, Texas Towing Compliance will focus on assisting select towing companies and parking facility owners stay afoul of violating the many numerous regulations.

Motorists are basically screwed, the chances of getting your money back without the assistance of an attorney are slim.

San Antonio will soon see some relief from the lawlessness of towing companies, negotiations  for the acquisition of a problem towing company, should reduce the rudeness of wrecker drivers. In addition, SAPD has hired a former TDLR employee to serve the role as their 2nd Wrecker Inspector.

Motorists will continue to be taken advantage of, it's unfortunate, but it has and will continue to give the towing industry a bad reputation.

TDLR (Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations) continues to issue Occupation Licenses to convicted child molesters, serial rapists and hardcore felons, nobody I know would employ a registered sex offender and the City of Austin Wrecker Ordinance prohibits sex offenders from being issued a City License.

I expect to keep a Facebook Texas Towing Compliance page for Austin, as I know the Austin Police Department Wrecker Enforcement Unit will never cease investigations of wrecker drivers whom have a history of breaking the law or charging unauthorized fees.

It's important to remember, that filing a complaint with TDLR, will not result in motorists getting their money back, rather line the pockets of attorneys and for sustainable employment of TDLR employees.

It's been five years since TTC was created, I've spoken to many thousands of people who were harmed financially by illegal towing, now is the time for me move on..

TDLR Once Again Allows Licensee To Violate Law

These days, it's becoming commonplace that licensees of the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation can  violate their rules, regulations and state law, with little or no resistance. The most interesting complaint filed against Quantum Unlimited, a towing company.

I filed a complaint against this company, for no valid license, no cab card, no insurance, all violations of State Law and the very rules and regulations, the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation is supposed to regulate.

But that didn't happen in this complaint, TDLR Prosecutor Adam Fellows decided no violation had occurred, but the Round Rock Police Department observed this tow truck in their city doing a repo, with all of the above mentioned violations. Not only was the tow truck stopped, but impounded, along with the vehicle in tow and tow truck driver sent walking with a handful of tickets.

TDLR cannot continue to harass licensees who obey the daily changing rules and do nothing to licensees whom harm motorists, and businesses.
