Tow Truck Drivers Busy with Snowy Conditions

Posted: Updated:

Tow truck drivers are staying very busy with the snowy weather.

Drivers at Howards in Kalkaska have been racing to keep up with demand. Calls have doubled if not triple in the past few days.

The business usually sees a spike in demand in the beginning of the season as people remember how to travel through snowy conditions.

"It's real important to have good snow tires, it's real important to have good traction on the road. It's real important to slow down and by all means keep your eyes focused on the road," said owner David Comai.

It also important to remember not to make abrupt movements on the road. Do not slam on the brakes, or speed, try to find a safe medium to keep you on the road and out of danger.
