Roadside Emergency Tips That Will Keep You Safer

A roadside emergency could occur at any time, so it is always better to be prepared than to simply overreact at the scene. Consider these roadside emergency tips if your vehicle is ever disabled.

If a driver pulls over to offer assistance, stay in your locked car and crack the window to ask them to call for assistance.

Never place road flares or safety triangles too close to the disabled vehicle. Give other drivers enough time to react by placing the safety devices much further away than you might think.

In the event one of the tires has a blowout, don't leave the car where it can be struck by oncoming traffic. It is fine to ride on the rim for a short distance to get the car and your passengers to a safer location.

The team here at Szott Ford hope this information can help you stay safe out on the highways.
