Roadside Emergency Tips

Despite our best efforts, unexpected vehicle emergencies sometimes occur. Keeping items in your car to prepare for breakdowns can help to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

Extreme weather can cause a weak battery to fail. Keep jumper cables in your trunk for those times when your battery refuses to fire. If your car experiences a blowout or other malfunction, pull off the road as far as you can and place warning signs or flares to alert other drivers. Make sure you know how to properly operate your jack in the event you need to replace a tire. Keep food, water and a blanket on hand in case you have to wait for help to arrive.
