Issue Background

Nonconsensual Towing

We don’t have to tell you time is money. The last thing you need as a professional truck driver is a breakdown on the side of the road. You can see almost see the money that you’re losing stacking up. Lost load. Repair bills. And then the towing company pulls up. Wrecker companies, with some exceptions, are usually dispatched by a law enforcement using a wrecker rotation list. While laws and regulations vary state-to-state, they generally do not protect truckers from wrecker companies who knowingly inflate charges for their towing services by tens of thousands of dollars. OOIDA is fighting back. Not against the entire towing and recovery industry, but against those wrecker companies that continue to intentionally, fraudulently, and unjustifiably hurt OOIDA members.
