NatGeo: Hell On The Highway

I feel sorry for Running Bear tow who was one of the centerpiece tow companies featured. AAA put them out of business after they consolidated tow contractors. Having used them twice they were always nice and professional. I know there were a few other tow companies in the area that didn't participate in the show.

I only found one news story regarding Running Bear: Fuel dumped on highway during reality TV show results in convictions
I only started watching the show last week and managed to catch 3 programs so far, it seems that the show's producers are giving Running Bear Towing a good light albeit not a lot of hope of surviving the season. The news articule does shed some light as why RBT is having a whole lot of problems with their trucks (lack of funds; funds that where used to pay off fines). If I was one of RBT's crew I would be looking for a new employer real quick while I was still in one piece. Operatin a tow vechile in the condition that is shown on the program this past Wed (1/2/13) it's amazing the no one has been injured.
