Tian says: ‘On March 7th, I took photos of a tow truck driver that damages a vehicle then tries to get away in Phoenix.

Sunday night (March 20th), Phoenix news channel 15 used a bait car and discovered that local tow truck company(s) would actually push cars into tow-away zone first, then held the cars as ‘hostages’ for ransom.’

I just watched it. The TV crew set up a white SUV as a bait car, and parked it legally. Time and time again, tow trucks would push the car into a red zone, snap a photo, and tow it away. Of course, when the TV crew showed the owner of the tow truck company how his drivers had pushed the car into the red lane, the owner denied responsibility. ‘I didn’t push it,’ he said.

Link to RealMedia file. The segment starts about 20:15 into the broadcast.

That’s why it is called the Wild West, my friend! Maybe people should snap photos every time they park their cars legally and then sue the tow truck company if the car gets damaged. Or elect a new mayor?
