Staying Safe During A Roadside Emergency

Roadside emergencies can occur at any time and in any place. By knowing how to remain safe in an emergency situation, you can travel prepared and worry-free.

If a breakdown occurs, be sure to stay as far away from traffic as you can. This is even more important if you breakdown on a busy highway or freeway. Look around for an emergency lane to stop, or any safe area that is off the roadway and out of the way of traffic.

If there is no way to get your vehicle to a safe place, then you need to move away from your car. Your trunk should always have an emergency kit, including triangles and flares, which will allow you to alert other drivers to your situation. You should always place the flares or triangles a healthy distance away from your vehicle, as you want other drivers to see your vehicle in plenty of time and avoid hitting it. Remember, always bring your vehicle by Findlay Toyota Prescott before a road trip, and get it checked before hitting the road, to minimize the chances of you having a breakdown.
