QC Tow Companies Busy During Winter

Updated:

 

Because it's so bitterly cold outside towing companies around the QCA are busy. They're making constant stops to help people who are either sliding off the road because of poor conditions or helping those with dead batteries.

"Mostly it's accidents people are sliding off into ditches but we'll get people who are at home and their cars won't start because it's so cold," said Daniel Forgie, President of Quad City Towing. "We know they're safe so we go out to people who are stranded in the ditches first then go to people at home and take care of them as well."

Experts recommend running your car often to keep the battery alive. 
    
Also, if you are heading out in this kind of weather officials always recommend having an emergency kit in the car with you. They say that should include at the very least blankets, candles, water and a fully charged cell phone.
