Governor Abbott Waives Towing Regulations In Response To Tropical Storm Imelda
Waiving of Regulations Will Allow Out of State Vehicles To Assist with Towing
Governor Greg Abbott today ordered the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation to waive rules relating to out of state towing vehicles. With current flooding and rainfall, vehicles throughout the Houston and Beaumont areas have been stranded and require towing. By waiving these regulations, responders will be able to move more quickly in recovering these vehicles and limiting damage to them.
“This order will ensure our communities have the resources they need to tow vehicles quickly and mitigate damage and danger for those in the storm’s path,” said Governor Abbott. “My office will continue to engage with local officials to ensure they have the resources and capabilities they need to respond to Imelda as quickly as possible.”
