Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is warning Missourians to be on the lookout for possible price gouging by towing companies.
Koster says it is normal to see slightly higher rates during winter storms as the companies try to cover overtime hours. What is not acceptable is when the tow service adds on un-disclosed fees at the end of service. Koster encourages anyone needing a tow to ask for a full estimate before having your vehicle hooked up to the truck.
Drivers should also look for tow trucks that have a license from MoDOT--the license should be easily visible on the truck.
