How to Stay Safe During a Roadside Emergency
The following roadside safety tips will help you to stay out of harm's way this year. Seconds count in these situations, so proceed with caution.
Never assume someone pulling over to help has good intentions. Keep your door locked and speak through the window that the police are on the way. If disabled at night but the car still has power, be sure the headlights, tail lights, and emergency flashers are all on.
Place any road flares several feet down road from where the vehicle is disabled so other drivers have the chance to be able to stop or slow down in time. In the event the car gets a flat tire, ride on your rim a few feet until the car is clearly off the road and you can work on it safely.
The team at our auto parts and service destination wanted to pass on these roadside safety tips so you are better informed this year.
