Wow, did this grow legs! First thanks for all the varied points. Second, some clarification. I am not blaming the cop for anything other than being a jerk. He insisted she get her info from the glove box repeatedly even though the EMTS had her immobilized and would not let her move- one of them got it. HE asked who we wanted for tow! He did NOT inform my wife that company "A" was not available and that he had called company "B" or ask if we had a second choice. Had he, we never would have asked for these guys. Third, I don't care one bit how much the tow owner pays for his equipment , lot, or insurance. That's his problem. Obviously he has an excellent business model, with his new buildings, prime location and late model trucks. If he's getting stiffed, it can't be too often. All, and I repeat, all business caries risk of non payment! I can site numerous examples but some will not hear it. My tractor example may not have been a good one, but I tried. Should one keep the truck keys of a roofer until he finishes the job? Should the dentist seize your coat off the hook until you pay his bill? Selling a service carries risk! Don't like it? Demand full payment up front or drive away. Is non payment right? Of course not! And its why his rates are what they are and its why all prices of anything are what they are-to cover those things such as insurance, capital, and of course "retail shrinkage" (theft). My point I guess was, I don't know of any other business that can seize and hold someone's property that is unrelated to the debt. I paid the bill! The car is home. I have an offer for it for 2 1/2 times the towing bill. ;)
