Icy roads mean more car crashes, and more cars being towed.
One towing company in Waco says their business has more than tripled in the past week. Just Wednesday morning, Woody's Wrecker Service towed nearly 20 cars, compared to the five or six cars on a normal day. They say that some of their jobs are from car crashes, but others are from cars sliding off the roads, just needing to be towed back home. On days like today, they say they never stop working. They expect to see even more cars tonight, than they have all day.
Even though their business is doing great because of the hazardous road conditions, they encourage everyone to stay off the roads as much as possible.
