Well, since Fire and Rescue Trucks are classified as "Emregency Vehicles", not "Commercial" vehicles then no, the hang tag rules don't apply.
In California tow trucks are not allowed to drive around and solicit services to anyone. Most states have this rule. This is to protect people from being gouged by cons.
It appears that after reading some of the new Mexico state campground rules that it seems simple enough that the commercial driver (tow truck/tire dude) needed to stop and get a no fee day use pass. This is for a specific event (repairing a tire at B56 and then leaving the campground). It says specifically that the commercial/contractors are not allowed uses of any other facilities on the grounds (lake, etc) without paying fees. It sounds like to me they may have had a problem with free loaders driving their work trucks into the parks and not paying the fees. Seems pretty legit to me.
(And this is not directed to youroo) but there seem to be a lot of people on this forum that have thin skin and have their feelings hurt for no reason. Rules are rules. They are posted either o a board, in a pamphlet, or online. If people choose to ignore the posted rules, get called out on it, plead ignorance, and then whine to their friends about their mistreatment because THEY cant understand or follow the rules is plain silly. (And that wasn't directed to the OP either).
I got yelled at for driving 8 MPH in a park when the posted speed limit was 5 MPH. I said sorry and adjusted my speed accordingly. When I was at another park operated by the same company, there were people passing me at 30 MPH, unsafely, with no one enforcing the 5MPH limit. I actually missed that lady that yelled at me at the first park. Wished she was at that one.
Enjoy camping people!
