In the midst of a State of Emergency and Mandatory Evacuations – they tow cars in Rehoboth Beach during Hurricane Irene

According to Alan Henney:

Not even a state of emergency could stop Coastal Towing! A police officer came across this red Dodge Durango with Florida tags just before 2 p.m. Saturday. It was parked up on the sidewalk in front of Jewels by the Sea in the ocean block of Rehoboth Avenue. The officer said the shop was boarded and nobody appeared to be around. So they called Coastal Towing for removal.

I understand that everyone needs revenue, and most businesses were forced to close during Hurricane Irene, but is it truly necessary that the one downtown business that still operates is the towing company?

It’s a “mandatory evacuation” and they have left a person, and possibly a family stranded while the buses are closed down.

Maybe the vehicle owner was checking on their property, maybe not.

Do you think it defeats the purpose of a “mandatory evacuation” and a “state of emergency” to leave people stranded by towing their vehicles?
