I would guess crashes could mean leaking fluids.. parts loose... etc. which generally would create a big hassle to the tow service.

Makes sense really.

I guess. it's not clearly written when you sign up that they won't tow for an accident tho. most of the people I know who signed up for the roadside assistance did it for the event of a crash. usually when I tell people they're not covered it's news to them... still good for break downs and I use it to tow my car a bunch

edit- ama and triple a contract the same truck drivers. there's no difference when aaa comes for a crash vs when ama comes for a break down. either way it's a flat bed from whoever will take the call.

My mistake. I read the terms wrong on their site. I'll edit my above post!

AMA and barf are poised on AB 51 to go full assault if the Assemblyman does not adjust the numbers.

Your support had an AMA rep at the meeting today reinforcing Assemblyman Quirk's promise to adjust to the findings. Those are not public yet. Hopefully they will be soon.

If you don't mind adding me... I'm only a newbie but I am registered with AMA and D36 for a hare scramble earlier this year. My plan is to keep renewing!
