Towing companies provide necessary service to Alaskans through the removal of abandoned, junked, and wrecked vehicles from public thoroughfares and private property. Alaskan towing companies follow prescribed laws in providing these towing services and in most cases are acting under the authorization or direction of public safety officers. Alaskan towing companies should be paid for providing these services to the public, but in certain situations they are not. Providing a statutory mechanism so that these small towing businesses are first in line for payment for delivered services will reduce business risk to these companies. House Bill 251 changes the priority in which payments may be made to provide for a fairer business environment to towing companies.
