Essential Roadside Emergency Tips to Keep You Safe

Being prepared in the event of a roadside emergency will make all the difference in how safe you and your passengers will be. Keep these tips in mind before you head out in your vehicle.

  • Keep a roll of duct tape in the car. It can be very useful for patching holes or even repairing a blown radiator hose. It will last long enough to get the car running and to a local service center.
  • If the car experiences a blowout, never leave the vehicle in a lane of traffic. Ride the rim to the shoulder, it will not do damage to the wheel for that short a distance.
  • Jumper cables and an empty gas can will help get a disabled vehicle back on the road in a timely manner.
  • Call 911 if the car becomes disabled, stay in the car with the doors locked.
