Do you have coverage in my area?
Yes! Our service is available in all 50 US states, the District of Columbia and Canada.

AAA isn't the only national towing network. You haven't heard of the others because they service the insurance, warranty, and fleet industries as well as auto manufacturers (many new cars now come with roadside assistance.) It should be noted that, for the most part, these networks are non-exclusive: the same service providers generally belong to all of them. Also, each of these networks has the same goals: get to the automobile within 45 minutes. Yet, none of them give guarantees: service time is dependent upon your location, whether it's rush hour, the weather, etc.

Why would the founders of Better World Club, start an auto club aimed at environmentalists.

Isn't that a conflict? A contradiction in terms? An oxymoron? (See, we've been asked this question a lot.)

Now, you might respond by thinking: this question must be asked by people who live on the moon (or France) because isn't it obvious to anyone who lives here in these United States that you can't live without a car (certain Manhattanites-who shouldn't be permitted to own a car, much less drive one--excepted). A friend of mine was on the Board of Directors of Greenpeace and is a very principled person (OK, compared to me). He and his wife owned 2 cars-including a Jeep.

In fact, let's do a study of the leaders of the Environmentalist movement and find out what cars they drive. Come on environmentalists; share your cars with us. Todd will step forward first and announce that his family has 2 cars-including an SUV-although he's considering a hybrid. I drive a '92 Infiniti convertible.

The point here is not to say that environmentalists don't walk the talk (although I'm sure we'd all admit to not doing everything we should). Rather, the fact is that we have to drive cars because, American mass transit being what it is, it's impossible not to.

The further point is that there are millions of people in this country will do the "right" thing if it's convenient to do so and the price is right. That's where business comes in: it's our responsibility to give people services that recognize the pollution that they generate and make it convenient for it to be prevented or cleaned up. If business doesn't accept this challenge, then it just means the auto and oil companies (and their customers: us) are being subsidized to spew out the pollution by not having to clean it up. The environment gets ruined, future generations suffer…Well, you get it.

OK, any other questions?
