Top Safety Tips for Roadside Emergencies

Flat tires, stalled engines, or failing transmissions are all examples of problems that could leave you exposed on a busy highway. To reduce your danger, always be prepared with an emergency kit.

An emergency kit in the trunk should include tools, a flashlight, can of fix-a-flat, flares, or orange triangles or cones. Position the flares or cones to direct other drivers away from your breakdown. If you get a flat tire, find a safe place to stop even if it means driving a short distance that could damage your rim. When a safe area is not available, move away from your car to avoid getting hit by passing traffic.
