WITNESSETH:

WHEREAS, ARS offers auto plans and various towing and automobile assistance dispatch services to members of the general public who enroll in or are otherwise eligible for ARS’s programs (“Members”); and

WHEREAS, ISP wishes to provide services such as towing and fuel delivery (hereinafter “Services”), as indicated on the ISP’s Provider Application attached and incorporated herein, to Members of ARS;

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises and consideration contained herein, the suficiency of which each party acknowledges, the parties to this Agreement agree as follows:

1.Dispatch. ARS shall contact and dispatch ISP to perform service calls for Members with disabled vehicles who are in need of Services. Upon receipt of a dispatch call from ARS, ISP shall furnish ARS with an estimated time of arrival (“ETA”) to the location of the Member in need of Services. ISP agrees that it shall use its best efforts to arrive at the Member location within the given ETA. If there are any changes to the ETA, the ISP is required to update ARS with the change. ISP shall be available to accept ARS dispatches during its hours of operation as listed on the Provider Application and shall inform ARS of any changes in its hours of operation.

2.Provision of Services. ISP shall be solely responsible for the provision of Services to Members. ISP shall provide

the Services in a safe and professional manner and shall be solely responsible for determining the proper equipment and methods for providing the Services. Drivers must be uniformed and must maintain a clean and neat appearance. Trucks must be maintained in a clean, safe and properly equipped manner displaying your company name. ISP shall be solely responsible for maintaining its own equipment as listed on its Provider Application and shall inform ARS of any changes in the equipment ISP has available for ARS work. ISP shall be solely responsible for any personal injury or property damage resulting from the ISP’s failure to perform the Services in a safe and professional manner.

3.Rate Schedule. ISP will charge ARS for Services rendered to Members as stated in the Rate Schedule which is incorporated herein by reference and as it may be amended from time to time. ISP agrees that it will not charge ARS or Members any fee in excess of the Rate Schedule or any amendments thereto, and that ARS may chargeback to ISP and deduct from any monies due ISP, any fee or charge in excess of the Rate Schedule.

ISP acknowledges that ARS’s programs contain restrictions and limitations on the use of Services by Members. On some occasions, Members may require Services in excess of those covered by ARS, including, but not limited to, towing vehicles distances beyond the mileage limitations set by ARS. In such instances, ISP agrees it shall charge the Member directly at the rates set forth in the Rate Schedule for any and all charges not covered by ARS. ISP agrees that it shall be solely responsible for collecting any fees from Members that are not covered by ARS, and that ARS shall not have any obligation to pay for such non-covered Services or attempt to collect payment for such non-covered Services from Members on the ISP’s behalf.

In the event that a member of the general public contacts the ISP seeking services, ISP agrees that it will inquire if such ISP customer is a Member of an ARS Motor Club. If the customer discloses that he or she is a Member of ARS, ISP will disclose its afiliation with ARS. ISP agrees that it will contact ARS to receive authorization to provide Services to such Member and will bill ARS and, if applicable, the Member for Services in accordance with the Rate Schedule. ISP agrees that in the event that ISP provides a Service to a Member of ARS and Member seeks reimbursement from ARS for the Services provided, ARS may charge back and deduct from monies due ISP any amount charged the Member in excess of the rates set forth in the Rate Schedule.

2

ARS reserves the right to amend the Rate Schedule at any time, and such amended Rate Schedule shall automatically become part of this Agreement unless ISP provides ARS with written notice that ISP is electing to terminate this Agreement in accordance with Paragraph 12.

4.Reimbursement Policy. ARS will reimburse ISP in accordance with the Rate Schedule for Services provided to Members that have been preauthorized by ARS. ISP shall invoice ARS for all such Services rendered at least monthly. The format and information contained in such invoice shall comply with ARS’s standards. ARS reserves the right to deduct from any payment to ISP, any and all monies ISP owes ARS. ARS shall not be obligated to pay ISP for any invoices submitted by ISP in excess of sixty (60) days after the date Service was provided. ARS also shall not be obligated to pay any invoice for Services that were not preauthorized by ARS, or in excess of the rates set forth in the Rate Schedule, or for Services not covered by ARS. ARS shall not be obligated to pay for any parts, permanent repairs or merchandise, or other matter that is not covered as set forth in the applicable ARS membership manual. ISP authorizes ARS to charge back and deduct from any monies owed ISP, all such non-covered charges.

In certain instances, in accordance with ARS’s auto plan beneits, ARS may guarantee payment on a check written by a Member for vehicle repairs or other services not covered by ARS. In such event, ISP shall require the Member to present an unexpired driver’s license and ARS membership card and ISP shall immediately contact ARS for conirmation and approval of the check guarantee request. Upon the issuance of ARS’s guarantee, if such Member check is later returned for insuficient funds, Motor Plan shall reimburse ISP for the amount of the check up to the guaranteed limit and any associated bank charges not to exceed $40. ARS shall not be obligated to pay for any returned check if (a) the check guaranteed was not preauthorized by ARS (b) the check was in an amount in excess of the preauthorized guarantee, or (c) the dishonored check is sent to ARS by ISP for reimbursement more than sixty (60) days after the Services are rendered. Except as speciically provided herein, ARS shall have no obligation to guarantee payment for any repairs or non-covered services provided to Members by ISP.

5.Damage. In the event that a Member alleges that ISP damaged a Member’s vehicle in the course of providing Services, or a Member otherwise alleges any damages as the result of ISP’s actions or omissions, ARS may withhold any monies due ISP for Services under this Agreement pending resolution of the dispute with the Member. If ISP fails to reach a resolution with such Member and ARS in its reasonable discretion believes that the Member's complaint is valid, ARS may reimburse Member and deduct such reimbursement from any monies due ISP.

6.Non-Exclusive. It is expressly understood that this Agreement is not exclusive in any respect. ARS maintains the right to contract with other service providers, including service providers who provide Services within the same geographic area as ISP. Likewise, ISP may contract with other motoring plans to provide services.

The person who gives Form W-9 to the partnership for purposes of establishing its U.S. status and avoiding withholding on its allocable share of net income from the partnership conducting a trade or business in the United States is in the following cases:

The U.S. owner of a disregarded entity and not the entity,

The U.S. grantor or other owner of a grantor trust and not the trust, and

The U.S. trust (other than a grantor trust) and not the beneficiaries of the trust.

Foreign person. If you are a foreign person, do not use Form W-9. Instead, use the appropriate Form W-8 (see Publication 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and Foreign Entities).

Nonresident alien who becomes a resident alien. Generally, only a nonresident alien individual may use the terms of a tax treaty to reduce or eliminate U.S. tax on certain types of income. However, most tax treaties contain a provision known as a “saving clause.” Exceptions specified in the saving clause may permit an exemption from tax to continue for certain types of income even after the payee has otherwise become a U.S. resident alien for tax purposes.

If you are a U.S. resident alien who is relying on an exception contained in the saving clause of a tax treaty to claim an exemption from U.S. tax on certain types of income, you must attach a statement to Form W-9 that specifies the following five items:

1.The treaty country. Generally, this must be the same treaty under which you claimed exemption from tax as a nonresident alien.

2.The treaty article addressing the income.

3.The article number (or location) in the tax treaty that contains the saving clause and its exceptions.

4.The type and amount of income that qualifies for the exemption from tax.

5.Sufficient facts to justify the exemption from tax under the terms of the treaty article.

Example. Article 20 of the U.S.-China income tax treaty allows an exemption from tax for scholarship income received by a Chinese student temporarily present in the United States. Under U.S. law, this student will become a resident alien for tax purposes if his or her stay in the United States exceeds 5 calendar years. However, paragraph 2 of the first Protocol to the U.S.-China treaty (dated April 30, 1984) allows the provisions of Article 20 to continue to apply even after the Chinese student becomes a resident alien of the United States. A Chinese student who qualifies for this exception (under paragraph 2 of the first protocol) and is relying on this exception to claim an exemption from tax on his or her scholarship or fellowship income would attach to Form W-9 a statement that includes the information described above to support that exemption.

If you are a nonresident alien or a foreign entity not subject to backup withholding, give the requester the appropriate completed Form W-8.

What is backup withholding? Persons making certain payments to you must under certain conditions withhold and pay to the IRS a percentage of such payments. This is called “backup withholding.” Payments that may be subject to backup withholding include interest, tax-exempt interest, dividends, broker and barter exchange transactions, rents, royalties, nonemployee pay, and certain payments from fishing boat operators. Real estate transactions are not subject to backup withholding.

You will not be subject to backup withholding on payments you receive if you give the requester your correct TIN, make the proper certifications, and report all your taxable interest and dividends on your tax return.

Payments you receive will be subject to backup withholding if:

1.You do not furnish your TIN to the requester,

2.You do not certify your TIN when required (see the Part II instructions on page 3 for details),

3.The IRS tells the requester that you furnished an incorrect TIN,

4.The IRS tells you that you are subject to backup withholding because you did not report all your interest and dividends on your tax return (for reportable interest and dividends only), or

5.You do not certify to the requester that you are not subject to

backup withholding under 4 above (for reportable interest and dividend accounts opened after 1983 only).

Certain payees and payments are exempt from backup withholding. See the instructions below and the separate Instructions for the Requester of Form W-9.

Also see Special rules for partnerships on page 1.

Updating Your Information

You must provide updated information to any person to whom you claimed to be an exempt payee if you are no longer an exempt payee and anticipate receiving reportable payments in the future from this person. For example, you may need to provide updated information if you are a C corporation that elects to be an S corporation, or if you no longer are tax exempt. In addition, you must furnish a new Form W-9 if the name or TIN changes for the account, for example, if the grantor of a grantor trust dies.

Penalties

Failure to furnish TIN. If you fail to furnish your correct TIN to a requester, you are subject to a penalty of $50 for each such failure unless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect.

Civil penalty for false information with respect to withholding. If you make a false statement with no reasonable basis that results in no backup withholding, you are subject to a $500 penalty.

Criminal penalty for falsifying information. Willfully falsifying certifications or affirmations may subject you to criminal penalties including fines and/or imprisonment.

Misuse of TINs. If the requester discloses or uses TINs in violation of federal law, the requester may be subject to civil and criminal penalties.

Specific Instructions

Name

If you are an individual, you must generally enter the name shown on your income tax return. However, if you have changed your last name, for instance, due to marriage without informing the Social Security Administration of the name change, enter your first name, the last name shown on your social security card, and your new last name.

If the account is in joint names, list first, and then circle, the name of the person or entity whose number you entered in Part I of the form.

Sole proprietor. Enter your individual name as shown on your income tax return on the “Name” line. You may enter your business, trade, or “doing business as (DBA)” name on the “Business name/disregarded entity name” line.

Partnership, C Corporation, or S Corporation. Enter the entity's name on the “Name” line and any business, trade, or “doing business as (DBA) name” on the “Business name/disregarded entity name” line.

Disregarded entity. Enter the owner's name on the “Name” line. The name of the entity entered on the “Name” line should never be a disregarded entity. The name on the “Name” line must be the name shown on the income tax return on which the income will be reported. For example, if a foreign LLC that is treated as a disregarded entity for U.S. federal tax purposes has a domestic owner, the domestic owner's name is required to be provided on the “Name” line. If the direct owner of the entity is also a disregarded entity, enter the first owner that is not disregarded for federal tax purposes. Enter the disregarded entity's name on the “Business name/disregarded entity name” line. If the owner of the disregarded entity is a foreign person, you must complete an appropriate Form W-8.

Note. Check the appropriate box for the federal tax classification of the person whose name is entered on the “Name” line (Individual/sole proprietor, Partnership, C Corporation, S Corporation, Trust/estate).

Limited Liability Company (LLC). If the person identified on the “Name” line is an LLC, check the “Limited liability company” box only and enter the appropriate code for the tax classification in the space provided. If you are an LLC that is treated as a partnership for federal tax purposes, enter “P” for partnership. If you are an LLC that has filed a Form 8832 or a Form 2553 to be taxed as a corporation, enter “C” for C corporation or “S” for S corporation. If you are an LLC that is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner under Regulation section 301.7701-3 (except for employment and excise tax), do not check the LLC box unless the owner of the LLC (required to be identified on the “Name” line) is another LLC that is not disregarded for federal tax purposes. If the LLC is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner, enter the appropriate tax classification of the owner identified on the “Name” line.

2However, the following payments made to a corporation and reportable on Form 1099-MISC are not exempt from backup withholding: medical and health care payments, attorneys' fees, gross proceeds paid to an attorney, and payments for services paid by a federal executive agency.

Part I. Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)

Enter your TIN in the appropriate box. If you are a resident alien and you do not have and are not eligible to get an SSN, your TIN is your IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Enter it in the social security number box. If you do not have an ITIN, see How to get a TIN below.

If you are a sole proprietor and you have an EIN, you may enter either your SSN or EIN. However, the IRS prefers that you use your SSN.

If you are a single-member LLC that is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner (see Limited Liability Company (LLC) on page 2), enter the owner’s SSN (or EIN, if the owner has one). Do not enter the disregarded entity’s EIN. If the LLC is classified as a corporation or partnership, enter the entity’s EIN.

Note. See the chart on page 4 for further clarification of name and TIN combinations.

How to get a TIN. If you do not have a TIN, apply for one immediately. To apply for an SSN, get Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card, from your local Social Security Administration office or get this form online at www.ssa.gov. You may also get this form by calling

1-800-772-1213. Use Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, to apply for an ITIN, or Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number, to apply for an EIN. You can apply for an EIN online by accessing the IRS website at www.irs.gov/businesses and clicking on Employer Identification Number (EIN) under Starting a Business. You can get Forms W-7 and SS-4 from the IRS by visiting IRS.gov or by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676).

If you are asked to complete Form W-9 but do not have a TIN, write “Applied For” in the space for the TIN, sign and date the form, and give it to the requester. For interest and dividend payments, and certain payments made with respect to readily tradable instruments, generally you will have 60 days to get a TIN and give it to the requester before you are subject to backup withholding on payments. The 60-day rule does not apply to other types of payments. You will be subject to backup withholding on all such payments until you provide your TIN to the requester.

Note. Entering “Applied For” means that you have already applied for a TIN or that you intend to apply for one soon.

Caution: A disregarded domestic entity that has a foreign owner must use the appropriate Form W-8.

Part II. Certification

To establish to the withholding agent that you are a U.S. person, or resident alien, sign Form W-9. You may be requested to sign by the withholding agent even if item 1, below, and items 4 and 5 on page 4 indicate otherwise.

For a joint account, only the person whose TIN is shown in Part I should sign (when required). In the case of a disregarded entity, the person identified on the “Name” line must sign. Exempt payees, see Exempt Payee on page 3.

Signature requirements. Complete the certification as indicated in items 1 through 3, below, and items 4 and 5 on page 4.

1.Interest, dividend, and barter exchange accounts opened before 1984 and broker accounts considered active during 1983. You must give your correct TIN, but you do not have to sign the certification.

2.Interest, dividend, broker, and barter exchange accounts opened after 1983 and broker accounts considered inactive during 1983. You must sign the certification or backup withholding will apply. If you are subject to backup withholding and you are merely providing your correct TIN to the requester, you must cross out item 2 in the certification before signing the form.

3.Real estate transactions. You must sign the certification. You may cross out item 2 of the certification.

4.Other payments. You must give your correct TIN, but you do not have to sign the certification unless you have been notified that you have previously given an incorrect TIN. “Other payments” include payments made in the course of the requester’s trade or business for rents, royalties, goods (other than bills for merchandise), medical and health care services (including payments to corporations), payments to a nonemployee for services, payments to certain fishing boat crew members and fishermen, and gross proceeds paid to attorneys (including payments to corporations).

5.Mortgage interest paid by you, acquisition or abandonment of secured property, cancellation of debt, qualified tuition program payments (under section 529), IRA, Coverdell ESA, Archer MSA or HSA contributions or distributions, and pension distributions. You must give your correct TIN, but you do not have to sign the certification.

Secure Your Tax Records from Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information such as your name, social security number (SSN), or other identifying information, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes. An identity thief may use your SSN to get a job or may file a tax return using your SSN to receive a refund.

To reduce your risk:

Protect your SSN,

Ensure your employer is protecting your SSN, and

Be careful when choosing a tax preparer.

If your tax records are affected by identity theft and you receive a notice from the IRS, respond right away to the name and phone number printed on the IRS notice or letter.

If your tax records are not currently affected by identity theft but you think you are at risk due to a lost or stolen purse or wallet, questionable credit card activity or credit report, contact the IRS Identity Theft Hotline at 1-800-908-4490 or submit Form 14039.

For more information, see Publication 4535, Identity Theft Prevention and Victim Assistance.

Victims of identity theft who are experiencing economic harm or a system problem, or are seeking help in resolving tax problems that have not been resolved through normal channels, may be eligible for Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) assistance. You can reach TAS by calling the TAS toll-free case intake line at 1-877-777-4778 or TTY/TDD 1-800-829-4059.

Protect yourself from suspicious emails or phishing schemes. Phishing is the creation and use of email and websites designed to mimic legitimate business emails and websites. The most common act is sending an email to a user falsely claiming to be an established legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft.

The IRS does not initiate contacts with taxpayers via emails. Also, the IRS does not request personal detailed information through email or ask taxpayers for the PIN numbers, passwords, or similar secret access information for their credit card, bank, or other financial accounts.

If you receive an unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS, forward this message to phishing@irs.gov. You may also report misuse of the IRS name, logo, or other IRS property to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800-366-4484. You can forward suspicious emails to the Federal Trade Commission at: spam@uce.gov or contact them at www.ftc.gov/idtheft or 1-877-IDTHEFT (1-877-438-4338).

Visit IRS.gov to learn more about identity theft and how to reduce your risk.

Privacy Act Notice

Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code requires you to provide your correct TIN to persons (including federal agencies) who are required to file information returns with the IRS to report interest, dividends, or certain other income paid to you; mortgage interest you paid; the acquisition or abandonment of secured property; the cancellation of debt; or contributions you made to an IRA, Archer MSA, or HSA. The person collecting this form uses the information on the form to file information returns with the IRS, reporting the above information. Routine uses of this information include giving it to the Department of Justice for civil and criminal litigation and to cities, states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions for use in administering their laws. The information also may be disclosed to other countries under a treaty, to federal and state agencies to enforce civil and criminal laws, or to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to combat terrorism. You must provide your TIN whether or not you are required to file a tax return. Under section 3406, payers must generally withhold a percentage of taxable interest, dividend, and certain other payments to a payee who does not give a TIN to the payer. Certain penalties may also apply for providing false or fraudulent information.
