They will never die out because there will always be off street parking spaces to exploit nobody will ever make the same mistake twice usually but I think there are still many unsuspecting parkers out there who have not yet been done enough to keep them in business for a very long time unless something is done about it. The line they always keep repeating is "You should not have parked there! " Yet they are smiling all the way to the bank because I did park there. The reason why the tow truck drivers prefer to wait there until you arrive and just leave the car semi hooked up is because its less work for them and they get to pocket the cash into their own wallet instead of it all going to the boss. I don't see how a business will survive if the whole thing is run by thieves the only reason why they are doing so well in Brisbane is because there are no guns. If this was going on in the USA all those tow truck drivers would have been shot dead by now and that tow truck office was not bullet proof it was made of tin, one drive by robbery and it's goodbye Brissy Towing.
