Sánchez explains, "The concessionaire wants to recuperate the money he lost on towing and storage. So when you see the advertisement, and you go to buy the 500 junk cars, the concessionaire tells you, 'Okay, you pay the junk price [to the municipal government], but then you still owe me for the towing and the storage.' Then you say, 'Well, I don't want it.' And then, in the end, the concessionaire keeps them and either sells off the parts or sells the whole car for scrap steel. So towing these cars in the first place is kind of an investment for the concessionaires."
