Lots of ICE around here still & it ruined the day for the driver of this 92 Subaru SVX. Bad enough he slid into the ditch to avoid another car, but watching the towtruck guy drag it 30' along the ditch then finally literally jerk it out was far worse. Notice the long trail of mud in the ditch. I guess these cars are rather rare, especially the AWD model which this one is. Very nice car, he drove it away, slightly wounded.
PISSED OFF TOW TRUCK DRIVER
NEVER PISS OFF YOUR TOW TRUCK DRIVER BY TELLING HIM YOU CAN'T PAY FOR THE TOW, AFTER THE TOW IS OVER IT MIGHT END LIKE THIS !!!!!!
Tow Truck Drivers Bad Day
Talk about a bad day at the office...
Thanks to vfdcapn for the video
bad day at the beach Bad Driver that sucks
This guy made the unfortunate decision to take his rig and spend the day at the beach. Unfortunately, being an out-of-towner he obviously did not realize that where he parked is hard compact (drivable)sand but when the tide starts coming in it turns soft really, really quick. Common mistake that happens way too often.
One of the mistakes he made, which we (the tow truck driver and myself) noticed when we were pulling it out at 3:00a.m. was that he had pulled the center part of his valve stem out, obviously thinking that if he let some of the air out of his tires that it would help him get himself out. Unfortunately, it let out ALL the air out and so when he tried to drive off all it did was make the rubber part of the tire spin. Rims spinning, rubber part now loose...dumb move.
This video and photos were taken about two summers ago at Hugenot Park. It is a city run beach and camp sites in northern Duval County (Jacksonville Florida). One of the only beaches that the public is still allowed to drive on. I was camping there and get called upon quite often to help pull newbies out of the in-coming tide. I've seen some even dumber mistakes than this one. It's usually quite a show when they (the victims) realize that they've waited toooo long to move the vehicle.
