Many people see the emergency lights on the numerous wreckers of a towing company the size of Alpine Towing & Recovery and automatically assume that we have some influence to get around the headaches that summer road construction season causes everyone. Trust us when we say we can only wish we had some sort of power to use our emergency flashers as sirens and permission to treat the traffic code with less respect, but we are like everyone else. The flashers are strictly for increased safety visibility when we actually get to the towing or roadside assistance site.
It is tragic when, as a tow truck service, we here at Alpine Towing and Recovery get called out to assist with a serious or even fatal highway collision, especially one that is the result of DUI.

No one who lived in the area at the time will ever forget the harrowing tale about how Dwayne Johnson gave his life saving his teen daughter Gracie by shielding her from the falling rocks.
A roadside emergency can happen at any time and always happens without any meaningful warning.
