• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Steve: He is looking for Co-Up towing in Toronto.
Abrams is a towing company here in T.O. & he is probably looking to steal business from them.

Thanks EJB for the info, people who send open posts like this must think that everyone has ESP and knows what they are talking about without making there post more clear, Canada is a big country and everyone is not from Toronto.

Those vultures must be one of the many unidentified towing talkgroups on Fleetcom or Mobile Business trunking systems.
Quite a few are identified but not Co-op. :(

Not to get into it, but without those people, do you have any idea how much of a cluster-feck our roads/highways would be?

Anywho... Take a look at the UHF MBC system for Co-Op Towing.

CHASERS are just HIGHWAY ROBBERS, if you live in Durham, or the City of Toronto, you can get the job done well for a lot less cash just by using a company that only responds when requested.

You have a right on the Highway to request your own tow, the Transports do it all the time, the VULTURES are just that and try to steal your hard earned cash to line their pockets.

Towing in Durham is about $75.00 to hook it up and $1.50 per km, no matter what the problem is, and if its an accident you pick a destination or the operators pound.

Lets not go into towing storage fees or Heavy Tow RIP OFFS.

Really, not all towing services are out to get you.

Actually, you don't. You have a legal requirement to get the heck off the highway ASAP. Usually the OPP doesn't mind if you wait for an owner-requested tow, but there are many times they will insist you take the first available tow. If you don't, the fine isn't cheap - far more expensive than just taking the first tow to show up.

Anywho, too off topic!!

I dont mind a person making a living, they do provide a service in a crunch. I broke down last yr & was rescued by a vulture, the price wasnt steep.
I just dont like that they drive like ass*****, dangerously. One cut me & other drivers off yesterday on the 403 thru Miss city centre.
