If your job is getting people's broken down vehicles off the road safely for a price, that's great if you can give us a good deal and help us out. I respect and appreciate ANYONE that helps me out if I'm broken down on the side of the road.

If you're barreling down the road, cutting people off, going around us, running up on curbs and tailing people with kids and families in their cars, that's where we get the vulture part on you. Wrecker drivers drive like reckless aggressive selfish arrogant bastards.

Sorry, it's happened to me too many times to not speak up here. The ratio of wrecker drivers that have almost caused accidents to those that have helped me over the last 20 years is easily 30 to 1 if not more.

2. Why run?
3. Hope the dumbfck is in lots of pain
Im just gonna go out on a limb here, but at 2:15am doesnt offer much light. Im betting there isnt a whole lot of people (even track riders) that are awesome at cornering when they cant see ..

BTW what is your moral here? Get really good at riding so you can run? Or dont run? Make up your mind.

Why on some of these single vehicle accidents will there be like 15 - 20 wreckers lined up all over the place.... Does everybody listen in and race down there and thumb wrestle to see who gets the tow?

As for the comments about helping/ not helping some one who runs from the cops, I truly do wonder some times if a bank robber for example is shot and send to the ER. do the surgeons really give 100% effort to save a douch bag's life?

Maybe they don't know the situation and so it doesn't affect their mind set. But say Rosanne Bar/Arnold/ whatever gets sent in. R they REALLY gonna try to save it???

Maybe if wrecker drivers didnt fly down the shoulder and generally act like they "own" the road when responding to an accident then i would not have a problem with them. But since 95% of wrecker drivers break 6 or so law every single time they are in route to an accident... It doesnt look like my opinion is changing anytime soon.

Well since 99% of statistics blurted out online are bullshit I am dropping the flag on this one.
