Being stuck on the side of the road is frustrating. But, please keep safety in mind. If your car has quit at night, stay in the car if at all possible. As cars pass and such, it is safer inside the car than standing alongside the road. Put your emergency lights on to show other cars you are there. If the car will move, move it out of the way either by pushing or driving it gimping to the side.
This will help other drivers that aren’t exactly paying attention not hit you. If you have a flat tire and need help, put the car as far off the road as possible. As we change it, the further from the road as possible will help with safety.
The highways are the most common place for tow truck needs. And, we have seen plenty of double and triple accidents as motorists don’t slow down. Or they are simply not paying attention to their surroundings.
