Abusive, predatory towing is usually a big city problem, but here it has touched even Ames, Iowa.

I blogged about this at . Unfortunately, there is nothing to stop this situation from happening again in Ames.

Information about towed vehicles should be available online to auto owners, police, insurance companies and towing companies, from beginning to end. The charges should be a matter of record. Otherwise, corruption creeps into the system.

Put these vermin in the worst most violent jail that can be found and let's see how tough these sissy boys are! A night with the 'tossed salad man' would do these scumbags a world of good!

We had towing on our insurance policy, so when we had a proplem we called our co. and they sent out Elmquist towing. Upon arrival the driver reached thru the window and broke the steering wheel trying to directing the tires, at that point he commented he had not ever had that happen. It has been over 6 months and nothing has been done, by neither the towing Co. or our grummy insurance co. Saefco (liberty mutual). We are sure once we paid our deductible they would leave us hanging, we were right. It seems they cannot do what is the right thing because it is not profitable.
