How is it possible that every tow truck driver outside of the United States is completely inept at doing their job? Granted we’ve got some goofballs over here as well, but for the most part, the majority of the towing fails we post come from other parts of the world. What our technician fails to realize is that when your pulling a car up a muddy embankment that’s filled with water, that the “new” weight may in fact exceed the capacity of the tow straps. Obviously he finds this out the hard way when the straps snap, thus sending the car back into the lake from which it came. On the bright side though it is quite amusing when what appears to be either the owner, or the driver strips down to their skivvies to try and save the car on foot. My bet… it ain’t going to happen.
