The city needs to go ahead and hire it's own fleet of tow trucks.

Problem solved.

OK! Where do I even start lol. I agree with y'all 100% on that video BUT the people that made that video (allied) are f*uckin idiots. They are NOT downtown wreckers, they work in southwest houston (galleria, sw freeway outside of 610) Me bein a wrecker driver and seein this scripted video really me off because in reality it is nothin like that. at least not in the city (county is a totally different story, which that company is) As for the city gettin its own wrecker service they more or less already do. and its NOT allied. I feel sorry for anyone that has to come across this company both past and future. but not all wrecker drivers are the same. Especially not like the stupid video.

What was the purpose of that video? A pilot/demo? Hoping to get picked up as a 'reality' tv show?

don't get me wrong. As with any group there are always good and bad folks. I just see too many wreckers hauling , driving on the shoulder, cutting people off, changing lanes w/o signaling, tailgating and just acting like they own the roads.
It's like they think they're cops or something.
I have have my saved by wrecker drivers a couple of times thoough.

i dont know the point of the video except maybe to prove their stupidity...the only thing i can defend cash is the shoulder drivin. i say this because we are there to get the accident removed as quickly as possible so traffic can get movin again. if its backed up thats our only option. now everything u mentioned happens because we only get paid on commission and with the fact that each accident scene is limited to no more than 4 wreckers (unless there are more than 4 cars involved) you kinda want to get to the accident so u have a chance to load a car. i mean its not like an hourly job, if u dont have a car on the back of your wrecker, your not makin any money. now im not condoning (spelling?) the wreckless driving cause while not innocent of it i at least signal and dont tailgate.
