How to Stay Safe in a Roadside Emergency

No one wants to have a roadside emergency. However, being prepared for the worse can make the experience a little less harrowing. Make sure you have an emergency kit that includes jumper cables, batteries, a toolset, antifreeze, a flashlight, help sign or flares, first aid and kitty litter or sand for traction in the winter.

If you do have a breakdown, pull your vehicle as far off the road as possible. When a blowout occurs, it's okay to drive on the rim of the tire until you can get to a safe location. Place flare or other emergency indicators around your vehicle so that drivers can readily see it. Stay inside your vehicle if a stranger comes to help and ask them to call for help.
