Important Things to Remember During a Roadside Emergency

Sooner or later, all drivers find themselves dealing with some extent of roadside emergency. These aren’t always severe, but any kind of emergency can result in far more severe consequences if you don’t handle it smartly and safely. Should you have an emergency, don’t panic! Bear the following tips in mind, and keep your cool, and you’ll be just fine.

In the event that you had a blowout, continue driving on your rims until you can accomplish this – your rims are far less valuable than your safety and the safety of those on the road.

  • The most important thing to bear in mind is safety – pull over as far away from active traffic as you safely can.
  • Be sure to put down flares, so everyone knows you’re there.
  • If you’ve had an accident, no matter what, don’t move your vehicle until law enforcement authorizes you to. Not only is this a crime, but it can make it very difficult to discern important aspects of the accident, and could result in someone being injured.
  • If someone offers help, don’t get out of your car. Crack your window, and ask them to call for professional assistance.
