BulldogTom Posted July 19, 2020 Report Share Posted July 19, 2020 I went to Reno NV this weekend to see my son and do some yard work with him (gambling was not the reason - it is my story, I will tell it my way). On the way through the mountains, my transmission went out. I am on the side of the road, 20 miles from the nearest town with weekend traffic whizzing by on Interstate 80. I am still 50 miles from my son's home. So I call AAA and tell them I need a tow. They tell me that is no problem, but that they can't let me ride with the vehicle. I have to arrange for my own transportation. Here I am on the side of the freeway, and I have to stand there, waiting for my son to come get me. Luckily, he was able to get out of work early and come get me, but the AAA driver just left me on the side of the road in the middle of the Sierra Nevada mountains. I am sorry, but this just seems wrong and wronger to me. If it was my wife instead of me, I would have been livid that they would leave her on the side of the road. Re-thinking my commitment to AAA after 30 years. I think there are other services out there. This policy of theirs could have deadly repercussions.
