Tow Truck Drivers: America’s Unsung Heroes

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – People should show some respect to the greasy tow truck driver getting them out of a jam.

That’s the truck talk from Cheryl Mish, executive director of the International Towing and Recovery Museum, which boasts 17 antique tow trucks dating back as far as 1913, various old towing equipment, and even a hall of fame for fallen tow truck drivers.

Mish says towers are the unsung heroes of America.

She says, “How many people do you know that would get up in the middle of the night when you break down on the road? They don’t get the recognition they deserve.”

Though she admits there are a few “bad apples” in the tow trucking bunch who rip off customers, Mish says this shouldn’t give all towing titans a bad name.

She says, “I’ll be the first to stand up for them. Maybe they do look greasy and scary, but that’s because they’ve just towed six cars.”
