In mid-January, new accidents involving tow trucks are going to be written in Alberta's history. Within 24 hours there were three accidents on Anthony Henday Drive and a fatal crash on Queen Elizabeth II Highway near Red Deer.
Following these accidents, tow operators in Alberta renewed calls for the addition of blue lights on their vehicles. Currently, Saskatchewan is the only province in Canada that allows tow trucks to display flashing blue lights.
