Description

Christine Beck lived every driver's worst nightmare: a breakdown in rush hour, in New York City. Her car was towed to a garage, but there things only got worse. CBS News used an undercover camera to record Beck's fight to get her car back, while the garage held it hostage. Using a planted car, a pattern of abuse by certain unscrupulous tow truck operators and mechanics was documented. (April 27, 1995)
