I see this all the time in Texas. This is why I laugh when people here talk about getting ticketed for going over the GVWR, payload, and tow ratings of a vehicle. You would think that these people would be the first to get busted if cops were so concerned about.

I seen a Nissan Sentra pulling two cars in I20 in Alabama, I see this quite often. My thought was the transmissions in all three cars, the lead car straining to pull and the other cars being flat towed.

They all appear to have some body damage. When they get to Mexico are they repaired or sold/driven as is?

I believe they purchase them from insurance auctions, can't answer if they are repaired.
