Beware of exorbitant towing charges

THE Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) would like to warn drivers that if they are in a road accident after midnight there is a possibility that they could be overcharged by workshops that tow their vehicles.

CAP had previously received a complaint from a driver that had gotten into a road accident after midnight. His car was towed a distance of less than 3km but he was charged a whopping RM800 for the service.
