a complaint regarding an illegal way of towing a vehicle
This week we received a complaint regarding an illegal way of towing a
vehicle along Osmena highway cor. Gil Puyat Makati City.
According to the complainant whose identification wanted to be kept
anonymous "Biglang huminto yung sasakyan namin and triny ko siyang ayusin.
After 5 minutes may dumating nang towing vehicle. Ang sabi itatabi ang
sasakyan at nung triny naming ulit gumana na siya. Pero nagulat na lang
kami at clinamp na agad at dinala sa towing base nila" The complainant
added that they even confiscated his license without any paper.
In our understanding, the towing company should first check if the vehicle
is not really operable and if not, that's only the time that the vehicle
should be towed. In our next episode we will raise this issue to the
authorities and see what the legal ways of towing a vehicle are.
