Eastern Wake: Opinion

Letter to the editor: Traffic court is unfair

On October 23, 2011, at approximately 1:45 a.m., I was dispatched to pick up a customer on New Bern Avenue. I called the number given to me by the dispatcher. It turned out to be a tow truck driver. He informed me that he had just towed a car to a repair shop. He informed me that it was closed and he did not know how long he could remain on the scene. I told him that I was on the way. He hung up before I could question him about the customer. My first thought was that I was picking up a lady with kids.
