Facebook video post shows ‘heavies’ in dangerous competition for tow

A video making the rounds on social media channels illustrates the current scourge of dangerous behaviour on Ontario’s highways as heavy wreckers compete for lucrative towing jobs. Note the two wreckers on the left nearly collide as one engages in a risky manoeuvre to overtake the other, ostensibly to be the first to arrive at an accident scene to secure a probable five-figure payday. There’s got to be a better way than to put the lives of towers, as well as innocent motorists, at stake for the sake of profit.
