We offer response times that are second to none. However, if you have broken down and are waiting for us to arrive, here are some things that you can do to keep you and your family safe from the hazards of the road.
- Turn on your emergency flashers.
- Try to move your vehicle to the right side of the road out of the direction of traffic. Stationing yourself on a divided highway’s left side is extremely dangerous, but sometimes unavoidable. Do not leave if your vehicle stops in a traffic lane.
- Move the vehicle as far away from traffic as you can. Try to get far enough that you obtain the space to open your door without stepping out into traffic, while also being visible enough, so that people can see you.
- If you feel that you are in a dangerous situation, please inform our dispatcher so that we can call for law enforcement assistance. Sometimes, getting some extra flashing lights on the scene can make all the difference in the world.
Be prepared for problem situations.
- Keep items in the vehicle such as flashlights, flares, blankets and a first-aid kit. Mobile phones in the vehicle are also the most valuable safety tool during breakdown situations.
- Know where items are in the vehicle such as your jack, spare tire and other tools and how they function.
- Regularly check the air pressure in your spare tire. Tires lose pressure over time, and the spare you don’t think about will be flat when you need it most.
- Program our number in your cell phone. 405-896-0606.
