Yes, that's a good idea Way will bring that up when he comes on next hour. Okay, number two. In the event of your from Long Island, you break down in New Jersey. You need to get flatbed it back to New York. Who pays for it all. I believe the customer always passed the customer always pit with any towing service customer always pays the toll. You gotta pay the toll both ways because he's gotta get back to you. Absolutely.
