Tow Truck

YouTube - Tow-truck motorcycle

This video shows a new tow truck that is actually a motorcycle. The motorcycle folds up the tow truck part and carries it in the back. The advantage is that they can move through traffic like a large motorcycle. Too often traffic is backed up for miles because of a disabled car parked in a lane and no one can get to it for an extended period of time.

This simple technological breakthrough can help to cut traffic snarls and speed traffic on it's way. This is the kind of innovative solutions that we need to keep urban traffic moving. Cities, counties and transit districts should seriously look at this type of towing vehicle.

Technology is needed to make our streets and highways move efficiently. This is just one of may examples; that's what the SGT Says.

Nice concept but it doesn't have a winch, a flat bed, a shovel or kitty liter.

It works well for stalled cars or minor T/Cs, not a major crash with a very rumpled up vehicle.
