Unless you have ever needed a tow truck to come to your aid, you probably don’t give the drivers of these vehicles or the vehicles themselves very much notice. However, if you have ever waited patiently for a tow truck driver to save you from an immobile vehicle, you were probably relieved when the wrecker showed up and activated its amber lights. To learn more about why tow truck drivers need bright amber lights keep reading below.

Tow Truck Drivers Usually Activate Lights Only When in Service

A tow truck can be called out to a scene at any hour in any type of weather condition. For this reason, a tow truck driver needs to be able to warn traffic of their presence in all directions. This is especially true when tow truck drivers have to work off-road or in treacherous conditions. For this reason, a light bar is the most obvious choice. With a light bar on top of their vehicle, drivers can shine illumination far and wide, which increases the visibility of the vehicle.
