Roadside Safety in an Emergency

Staying safe should always be your number one priority. In the unfortunate circumstance that you find yourself in a roadside emergency, there are some best practices to follow to stay as safe as possible during the emergency.

Try to keep your distance from traffic. Getting too close to the roadway runs the risk of serious injury, or even death. Try to find a safe spot to stop your car, such as an emergency lane, or a grassy area nearby. If necessary, it is acceptable to drive on the rim of a blown-out tire until you make it to a safer area. If you can't find a safe place to park your car, then move yourself and any passengers to a safe space away from the vehicle.
