    I've always wondered that as well. Doesn't mean anything to me.

    If it is in the roadway it gets towed by me. Off the roadway, and not on private property, gets a 72-hour sticker. Dept policy

    It let's us know your intent but if the car is in the roadway its getting towed, white rag and all.
    I got you, I just think it is a weird practice. As for the hazards/battery thing, I would have my car towed long before the battery dies from the hazards.

    I have personally towed quite a few with its white "surrender" flags still attatched.

    I am not from the south but have transplanted myself out here from the west. Can anyone tell me where and why the practice of hanging a "White" object from your broken down car on the side of the road started. Is it to let us all know that you surrendered to your car.

    I thought that your hazards were the apropriate action.
