While the winter weather can make for unsafe driving, it also means big business for some towing companies, such as towing businesses, which are seeing more work this season than entire years in recent history.
The team at Express Towing and Recovery spent Saturday morning, January 25th dragging cars out of ditch and towing vehicles from accident scenes.
The roads were terrible. Even the other storms we have had, this morning, for some reason, even the tow trucks, we could not stop, said owner Jim Welland. We most likely made more in the last 2 months that we did all year for the last 3 or 4 winters.
Conditions in Waukesha County Saturday morning resulted in Twenty five vehicles in ditches, 13 accidents resulting in property damage and 9 injuries.
All of which was a result of just not giving sufficient distance between the vehicles, not taking your time, speed too high due to the weather, said Lt. Anthony Kasta with the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department.
