New Michigan law bars tow trucks from harassing drivers

And while many are reputable operators, some are known as “wreck chasers” – trolling for business from customers who are stranded in vehicles or at the scene of a car accident.
A new law in Michigan will prohibit tow truck operators from harassing drivers. Legislation signed by Gov. Rick Snyder on Thursday will fine tow truck drivers who use aggressive or unethical practices to solicit motorists $1,000. http://michiganradio.org/post/new-michigan-law-bars-tow-trucks-harassing-drivers
