 MILWAUKEE - The cold snap we're dealing with is taking it's toll on vehicles, especially older ones. The extreme weather is keeping tow truck companies extra busy. Officials at Always Towing and Recovery in Milwaukee say they've seen a 50 percent increase in business since the bitter cold hit the area. They're seeing a lot of dead batteries along with alternator problems. They also say the cold deflates tires, so it's important to check your tire pressure during cold snaps. They say vehicle maintenance is key to keeping it running in extreme weather.
