My car (automatic) was almost towed (boo, hoo, hoo, pity me...). Anyway...the *ock *ucker had the chains hooked up to the tow hooks on the back of my car when I arrived at the scene. :mad: So to make a long story short, I asked him: "I have a question for you. How did you plan on towing my car (onto a flat bed) while it was in"P?" The mofo said "Not a problem, we do it all the time."

Wouldn't this break the parking pawl? Well in retrospect I guess not because he's a "professional" towing operator but still towing a car while in "P" seems awfully brutal to me. What do y'all think?

Never underestimate the stupidity of people, even if it's their job. :p Even if he was correct, you should still have the right to ask him to tow it in neutral with the drive wheels off the ground. It's your car!

Well it was illegally parked so that's why it was about to be dragged in "P" onto his flat bed truck. I just happened to walk out and catch him before he did it.

if your illegally parked what did you expect. It isnt his job to put it in nuetral, its yours to not park it in a tow zone. I'm not bieng a dick, but its just the guys job.

The purpose of the post wasn't to debate/whine about my parking decisions, I just wanted to know how it's possible to tow a car in "P" without damage.
