Back up on my “Predatroy Towing” soapbox for a bit . . .

This blog about predatory towing has come to my attention, and according to this blogger, Oregon is a predatory towing theme park!  I am usually very proud to be an Oregonain.  Right now, not so much!

Anyhooooo . . . this guy seems to have much more time to dedicate to the issue, and access to much more information about where and how it’s happening all over the country.  If you or anyone you know has been a victim of this CRIME, please leave a comment in his blog, or here in mine.

WE NEED TO BRING IT TO THE ATTENTION OF OUR LOCAL LAWMAKERS THAT THIS IS A CRIME WE WANT ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY! 

The federal government has ‘paved the way’ to make it possible for local governments to pass laws governing predatory towing practices, so what’s the hang up?!?!  If enough people contact their local officials, SOMEONE is going to listen and run with the ball.  It IS an election year after-all.  What better way to win the people over than to do something that helps them in their everyday life.

BUT, they need to know how RAMPANT the practice or predatory towing is.  Please look up the website for your state lawmakers and send them an email!

Stepping off my soapbox now and getting back to the ‘important business’ of turning trash into treasure!
