$185 FEE PLAN KEEPS DRIVERS ON THEIR 'TOWS'
By SALLY GOLDENBERG, NY POST
Adding insult to injury, the City Council is considering a bill that would more than double the cost of towing a car from an accident scene.
The bill would hike towing fees from as little as $70 now to a new rate of $185 for hauling cars away after an accident or a breakdown on a public highway.
The towing industry yesterday applauded the legislation.
Bill sponsor Leroy Comrie, a Queens Democrat, said the amount of the increase is subject to change, given the city's opposition.
