Provincial legislation is a must to protect drivers.

The CAA South Central Ontario is calling on the Ontario government to prioritize the regulation of the towing industry.

“Long wait times, unscrupulous tow truck drivers and sky-high towing bills will continue to be an issue for motorists unless the Ontario government makes provincial towing regulation a priority,” said Teresa Di Felice, AVP, government and community relations at CAA SCO.  “Doing so would ensure Ontario motorists have certainty when it comes to towing services, regardless of when or where they require support. It will also help to earn respect for the many men and women who work hard to provide an important service on our roads.”

Calling for a tow truck on the side of the highway can be a stressful experience for motorists, she added. To help drivers, CAA launched the Towing Bill of Rights, a glove box reference card, to help avoid any confusion when it comes to the rights of motorists when calling for a tow truck.
