Pittsburgh has towing equipment available for sale. This may be available either for firsthand or secondhand sale (since the former can be quite expensive). A towing vehicle has an assemblage which can clamp and pick up a stationary vehicle. The latter can then be carried with the first vehicle. This is needed for emergencies and accidents, as well as for towing away vehicles guilty of traffic violations. Some of the parts needed for the towing equipment include attachment, hooks, chains, binders, toolkits, lighting, straps, ratchets, ropes and winches. The car can then be either sent to the police yard, or to a place where it can be either repaired or totaled (if it has been in an accident).
