Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. It’s the time of year when people get out on the road to enjoy a vacation or to take advantage of the warmer weather for the weekend. For many in the DFW area, this involves everything from visiting the area lakes, to camping, to car shows, and rodeos. Many of these activities include towing a boat, trailer, camper, or other recreational vehicles. So, it’s always important to know your vehicle’s towing capacity.
Some safety tips that many people are aware of while waiting for a tow truck to arrive are to turn on their hazard lights and to make sure their vehicle is out of the way of traffic. There are also several other precautions for drivers in the Dallas Fort Worth area that can ensure you are doing everything possible to keep yourself out of harm’s way until help arrives.
There are many reasons someone may need to call a towing company, but having a car break down on the side of the road for poor maintenance should not be one of them. Keeping your car in good running condition is not difficult when you follow a simple schedule and a few basic tips.
Summers in North Texas can soar to over 100 degrees and hot weather is the number one cause for a car overheating that can result in you needing a tow. However, that’s not the only reason a vehicle may get too hot. Everything from a stuck thermostat to a malfunctioning fan can affect the temperature of your car’s engine.
There are times when a tow truck driver is a welcome sight. When you have car trouble, or have been locked out of your vehicle, or have been involved in an accident, a tow truck driver, and their expertise might be just what you need. Then, there are times when getting towed is the last thing you need. For those times, using common sense and avoiding any of the instances below, can keep you from an unwanted tow.

During the early morning hours of January 4th, 2019, tow truck driver Keith Holt, 46, was struck and killed in a hit-and-run collision on the shoulder of I-20. He was assisting a woman with a stalled vehicle on the side of the highway, the standard procedure for tow truck drivers, when the white Nissan Altima swerved into the right lane shoulder. This workplace condition was common for Holt, and is a regular work environment for a tow truck operator; a job more dangerous than one might think.

One of the most helpful options that full-service towing companies provide is roadside assistance in DFW which includes service for things like flat tires, battery service, fuel delivery, and lockouts.
