When you leave your car where it’s not supposed to be- on the roadside of a really narrow road, or a place with high traffic or even in front of someone’s house or shop- you may not realise it but you are causing a lot of trouble and inconvenience for the people around you. You may yourself have been on the receiving end of this when someone parked their car where it’s clearly written “NO PARKING” and now your road is blocked. Annoying, isn’t? Well, that’s where our heroes come in- tow services. Towing Memphis may not wear capes but their highly equipped trucks will be there to tow away those nasty cars that create a nuisance and rescue the people from a blocked or congested road and create space for traffic.
But what’s so important about towing?
When you are not careful about where you are parking your vehicle, it not only causes trouble to the people around you but may cause severe damage to you yourself. When an unclaimed and unattended vehicle is towed away, it’s generally kept at a car impound or in some cases, in big police stations. In either of the cases, the car can be reclaimed back by the owner, albeit after paying some fine. No damages are done if you work fast enough, and you generally get quite a large time window. But if your vehicle remained unattended in its place, there would be a high risk involved. Your car could roll down a slope and crash in other cars, or it could sink into the depths of a nearby pond, there could gas leaks from the prolonged period of not being maintained which would prove to be highly catastrophic. But the funny part is, illegal parking isn’t the only reason why cars can be towed:
- Invalid license- If you are caught driving without a proper, valid license, your car may be towed off to and impound as it is dangerous for unlicensed people to drive. Even an expired license doesn’t count.
- Expired registration- If your car registration period has expired towing Memphis may tow your car away to the local impound where you won’t be allowed to reclaim your car till you renew the registration on the vehicle.
- Disabled Vehicle- On the occasion, your car is found making its way on the road whilst not being in safe conditions for driving (like producing excessive fumes or having break problems), your car can be towed away as it is unsafe for everyone on the road, including you.
- Not paying tickets- Be careful if you have too many pending parking tickets stashed away, as that may spell the doom for your car since towing Memphis can then tow your car away on the grounds of excessive violations.
All said and done, we can see that though we curse the tow-trucks for taking our cars to the impound and causing us headaches, in reality, it is all for the collective good.
