Came across an interesting, if disturbing story on NPR, the fab US free news and generally great info source, today.

Apparently police in Pittsburgh have had to crack down on competing tow truck companies, who have reached a point of brandishing weapons at the scene of motor accidents, when competing over lucrative tow fees (apparently linked to particular insurers in the US).

Just for a moment I had an image of some of our more prominent tv advertising lawyers, doing the same over a poor spinal injured passenger at an accident scene or at RPH rehab.

Lot to love about the US, but glad this remains an absurd idea in little old West Aus….
