Important Roadside Emergency Preparation Tips

The best time to handle any sort of roadside emergency is to do so long before the situation arises. Keep these tips in mind to avoid serious trouble on the highway.

  • If your car has experienced a blowout, never stop the vehicle while still on the road. It is safe to ride on a rim for a few feet, enough to get the car safely out of the way of oncoming traffic.
  • Don't place road flares or orange safety triangles near the disabled vehicle. Always place them at least a hundred feet up the road so oncoming traffic can see and react to the disabled car.
  • Move the car to an emergency lane or on to a patch of grass so it's not struck by another driver who may be distracted or didn't see the car until too late.
