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.

Oh holy crap. They fired the driver and arrested him, but did nothing for the mother who left the kid in an illegally parked car? That's just a whole load of crap right there.

I called the towing company and left a message that I'd like to donate to the driver's legal costs.

As a kid, my parents regularly reminded us there was no reason for us to be left alone in the car. I remember that especially after news reports where parents left children in running cars for "just a minute" and a thief took the running car.

I was just thinking that if I'd been driving that tow truck and noticed a child in the car, I wouldn't turn back and return. I'd just have driven over to the police station instead.
