I need to contract this company to deal with the two entitlement cows who park in the fire line outside my building every day: Dallas Child Sleeps In Car As It Is Towed Away

"It was a split second, just like that," she recalled. . . . parked her car in a fire lane while she ran upstairs to her apartment. She left her 7-year-old son . . . asleep in the backseat of the car. When [she] came back downstairs, her car and her son were both gone.

I highly doubt it was "just a second"; the cows visiting my building take 5-10 minutes on an average day. It's a damn shame they arrested the tow truck driver for endangerment. That sends the message that the mother /wasn't/ endangering her child by leaving him in a car parked in a fire lane at night.

How long does it take to tow a vehicle, from placing the call to the truck arriving to actually dragging the car away?

Surely it's more than "just a second"...

A quick Google search revealed that the towing company in question has a reputation for patrolling areas where it's contracted to tow, so the time was probably shorter than if it were called in.

I don't know why the woman didn't park in a parking space since she was outside her own apartment building. She doesn't even have the weak excuse of "I don't live here".

I think it takes about ten minutes to get the car onto the tow truck, start to finish. At least that's how long it took after my accident. So yes. Definitely more than a 'second.'
