    Link: Crazy Korean Tow Trucks Race To Reach An Accident - Who knew Korean towing was so competitive? How many laws were broken and why do tow trucks have sirens in Korea?

    Great, so now they`ll probably get their own show on A&E and have an ad where they pose in front of a tow truck with their arms crossed trying to look tough...

    I guess if they have a siren, there was no law breaking. Everything this truck did is legal here as far as emergency vehicles go.

    Ok, risk more accidents so more tow trucks are needed to tow the tow trucks that crash. With enough tow trucks all racing towards the same car, some work can be created on the way.

    1:18 the white truck actually backs up so the other car can get out of the way?
    Koreans are GOOD DRIVERS!!! (who knew?)
    3:15 another car gets out of the way
    3 trucks raced to the crash site? Must pay a lot to pull cars around in Korea...

    The good news is they won`t have to call a tow truck when they have the accident.

    My favorite highlight of the video is the fap-kin box and bags of cocaine visible in the window reflection.

    I lived there for 8 years. This is nothing. The police don`t enforce the traffic laws. The reason Americans think they are bad drivers is because they are use to not following traffic laws.

    Who says the vehicle with the dashboard cam WAS a tow truck? Everything in the video says to me that it`s a police car. It`s a case of mistaken labeling.

    @naomlette, the height of the dashboard means it`s a truck, and then you see a bunch of other tow trucks (2 min in) being just as reckless and you notice that they are racing. Plus they arrive at the scene of a car crash and put themselves in front of it.

    This was insane, it felt like need 4 speed...

    Korea is full of piss-poor drivers so I`m not surprised by this. Even normal cars will drive on the side of the wrong road to get around someone and not even pay attention to whether or not someone`s coming from that direction. Traffic lights and other road rules are more like a suggestion than a law. Needless to say, they have very frequent accidents. I hate driving where I live but honestly I`d be terrified in Korea. Even bus drivers and taxi drivers do this kind of stuff. x-x

    Tow truck drivers often get paid by the pickup when it comes to accidents, and it`s not just in Korea. I live in Chicago and almost got hit by a tow truck racing to get to an accident. He ran a red light (that had been red for a good 5 seconds) so he could beat everyone else.

    kittehdee: Usually tow trucks in the US, and I live in Illinois by the way, aren`t that cutthroat competitive. Where I`ve lived the police dispatchers cycle through a list of local towing companies so that they each get an equal amount of `crash` business. If there are multi-car accidents they call out one tow truck company for each car or truck involved.

    The same is done for ambulance companies too.

    CrakrJak- Mebbe things changed in the nearly 40 years- used to work for Lincoln Park Pirates in the mid 70`s, we were... competitive, yeah that would be one word for it. Cutthroat and crooks would be other names.
    Cops got kickbacks when recommending our service; That includes staties for highways and toll roads, and city cops for surface streets. If called, we charged premium fees, as it took us away from our usual business- we had a city towing contract, and on slow shifts(We had quotas) we were encouraged to bring in legally parked vehicles- and we generally got away with it.

    i have a hard time believing that was a tow truck, considering one pulled up in front of them. but even if it was an ambulance, that`s really crazy, it must have caused accidents on the way there.

    and is every car equipped with cameras in that area?

    I`ve been to Korea. Although the roads are relatively safe, you can do some stupid stuff. One time I unknowingly got in a car with a crazy driver. We were doing 140+kph on the wrong side of the road. :o
