What It Means to be an Official Police Garage

In Los Angeles, people are dependent upon cars to get around. But most people don’t think about what happens when their car gets impounded or they get into an accident. Why would you want to? In the City of Los Angeles, towing and impound is strictly regulated and enforced. Currently, the Official Police Garage is decentralized, meaning the LAPD uses various locations across the city to accommodate their need for the storage of the vehicles that are towed. As mentioned before, this is highly regulated, and there are certain certifications you need and regulations you must adhere to in order to become an Official Police Garage. Keep reading for more details on what it means to be an OPG.

Vehicle Rollovers 101

Vehicle rollovers are often glamorized in the movies and television, showing crazy scenes of cars flipping and rolling over, and passengers exiting the vehicles unscathed. These scenes aren’t very realistic, and most of the time, they don’t focus on the aftermath of the rollover. When an actual vehicle rollover happens, your reaction could dictate your survival. 

Rollovers are scary and jarring, but they don’t happen as often as you’d think, as they account for only 3 percent of all serious crashes. But the thing about rollovers is they make up 30 percent of people killed while riding in a passenger vehicle. This blog is going to dive in depth about vehicle rollovers and some information that could potentially save your life, even though you may not need it right now.
