I drive an older car that I always knew would break down some day in a bad place and need towed. I figured I could always easily look up the number of a towing company using my phone's internet service if I ever needed to. Recently, my car started making an alarming sound that led to me pulling off the road while driving down the highway. It then wouldn't start back up. I grabbed my cell phone and went to do a web search to find a local towing company, and I realized I had used up all of my data plan for the month! It was late at night, so I had to call and awaken friends until someone answered who could help. I created this blog to help others avoid the same embarrassment as me. Always keep the number of a tow truck company in your car.

Needing to tow your car to a repair shop can happen at any time. If the towing is needed during business hours, you can feel lucky; you can have the towing company take it right to your mechanic. However, if you need the car towed outside of normal mechanic business hours, then you have to make a decision: Tow the car to the shop and leave it there with instructions, or tow it home and then have it towed yet again the next day?
