FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- With falling temperatures, tow trucks are working even harder.

One local tow company said they've seen an increase in cars that won't start, batteries dying in the middle of roadways, and cars going off the road due to slick spots.

"The majority of our calls are actually police calls. So we work for the city, the county, the state, so the majority of our calls come from those," said Nichole Franks of Parker Servicing.

Franks wanted to remind drivers to slow down in slick conditions and be on the look out for tow truck drivers on the sides of the roads.
