Tragedy and the Heat of Passion in Watertown, Massachusetts

September 24th, 2018|0 Comments

There was a truly tragic story this month involving a tow truck driver in Watertown, Massachusetts.  68-year-old Benita Horner was involved in a fatal accident that allegedly resulted in Ms. Horner being struck and pinned beneath a tow truck while crossing an intersection.  Moments later, the victim’s 38-year-old son, who witnessed his mother being run over, jumped into the tow truck and allegedly repeatedly stabbed the driver, who sustained critical injuries.  The victim’s son, who is reporting as having a history of mental health issues, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault and battery, and resisting arrest.  Meanwhile, no charges have been announced against the tow truck driver.

The Uber Case: When Your Competitor Ignores The Rules

September 7th, 2018|0 Comments

At TowLawyer.com we often get calls from subscribers frustrated over the lack of enforcement of laws and regulations that apply to their local towing operations. Nothing is more infuriating that seeing a flagrant violation of a towing ordinance or police department regulation by a competitor that goes unenforced. For example, a local ordinance requires all tow trucks to carry a fire extinguisher and broom but none of your competitor’s trucks have that equipment. Or the police department rotation rules require a 10-foot chain-link fence capped with strands of barbed-wire but your competition only has a rickety 6-foot fence patched up with chicken wire and pieces of tin.

Happy Labor Day! The tow industry is filled with dedicated and hard working people. Workers who show up to work battling weather, road hazards and other adverse conditions day in, day out. We hope everyone gets some down time this weekend and has a relaxing and safe holiday with family and friends. -TowLawyer
