  • Also, the vehicle the tow truck is hauling can come loose. So this loose vehicle becomes an unmanned weapon. It can be deadly to motorists, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians as it flies off the hitch into oncoming traffic. When a vehicle comes loose at high speed, you might be able swerve out of its way. But then you could get in a collision with other motorists due to your evasive action.
  • An aggressive tow truck driver who travels over the speed limit also poses an extreme danger. And this danger is not confined to the drivers around them.
  • At any rate, the brake lights on these large trucks are not always visible. And if the emergency warning lights on the towed vehicle are not visible it can cause a rear-end accident. If the truck suddenly stops or slows down, the following driver has no warning. At this point, there is a rear ender.
  • Improper maintenance can make it a weapon on the roadway. Regrettably, this can mean a multi-ton truck hauling a vehicle weighing tons colliding with numerous objects. And this could be from faulty brakes, tires or mechanical failure.
