^ exactly. Who knows if it would have been lucky next time. Proactive approach is better than reactive. Don't want him to lose his job, but he should be made aware. Possible retraining or driving a different route that's not at night.

Not trying to be racist, but East Indian drivers really makes the commercial truck driver industry look bad. Why can't he just wait for the car to finish the fill up rather than parking the track diagonally across the aisle to get diesel.

I think it seems this way because of the number of east asian people in the Vancouver area.
I have been in places where there are a great number of truck drivers (mostly caucasian) and its no different.
Some care more than others, it just seems like this because of the community we live in.

Yup, to a degree it is a correct complaint. Chances are it will be an someone of asian decent that is the "bad driver" when the general population is mostly of asian decent.

Retrieved from my mom's dashcam:

My mom still hasn't fully recovered when it comes to driving. She's doesn't like going too fast, always worried that something might happen. So, here she is, cruising down the road at the speed limit. Apparently, the tow truck driver behind her got impatient, went around her using the left turn only lane, while laying on the horn. AND while towing another car. My mom got really scared and didn't want the truck to hit her, so she stopped for the truck to pass.

On the truck, it says "Tonk's Towing", but that company leads to another company called "Rusty's Towing." So I'm guessing they're the same company..?

Anyways, I plan on filing a formal complaint against the company sometime this week, when I'm done with my exams. Thoughts?

Maybe your Mom should obey the speed limit, and not go what appeared to be 30-40k. i would have honked at her also.

@above: Nice Edit lol.

It's a speed limit, and not minimum. Yes she may have been going a bit slow compared to other traffic, but she is doing nothing wrong. Honking and recklessly going around her in the left turn lane are two different things.

@below: If she had kept going, she would've collided with the tow truck.

If I was the owner of that car being towed I would not be too impressed by the way he is towing the car...

Filing a complaint to who, the company? They won't do shit.

First thing I'd do is find out if they're contracted by the city and file a complaint with them, along with the video.

If she was in the left lane going that slow, than yes, she really needs to move over... But it's a one lane each way, she has every right to go what looks like around the speed limit in the rain... Get off your high horse.

Aren't tow truck drivers supposed to attach a 2nd set of brake lights on the vehicle being towed? You know? for Safety reasons?

Saw this at Metrotown the other day...



Had to look twice, but dayum that's close for comfort! No idea what the person with the S-Class was thinking, but either way, those spots are narrow!

I know this is kinda of hard to see but try to follow the tail lights (Full screen to better view). Basically one guy in a Sentra was cutting people off the whole way down and pissed off the CRV and he slowed down and didn't let him pass... Then all downhill from there.
