I made it one whole day in 2005 without towing something. Then my mom hit black ice this morning sending her Dakota into the ditch and taking out a light pole on the freeway. No injuries, and not a whole lot of damage. By the time I got there, a tow truck had beat me, and even though I could have driven the thing out of the ditch, they had to by law hook up and pull it out and charge her $146 just for that. She was shaken up and didnt feel like driving so I loaded it on the trailer and towed it home. Hit the pole going backwards, damaged the tailgate and bumper, and the top of the cab where the pole fell on top of the truck. I knew that cause it was new something would happen to it.
