With diesel fuel over $4 a gallon, the cost to operate a legitimate towing company is becoming difficult. Most motorist haven't an idea the cost of owning a tow truck, much less an adult daycare for convicted felons. Companies being lured under deceptive circumstances, all cost of owning a towing company.
Granted, tow trucks last many years, some within the towing industry think the consumers should have to pay more for luxury items, this screw the public mentality is growing.
I believe TDLR should establish for "fuel surcharge" of a % of the tow charge, transport from one location to another location.
Towing companies today are faced with finding honest drivers and high operating costs, not to mention compete in an industry that financial kickbacks is commonplace.
