Tips for Preparing for a Roadside Emergency

The thing about preparing for an emergency is you never know when or if you will need to utilize the skills you learn. Better safe than sorry, so preparing in advance could be more useful than you might realize.

If you are able to maneuver the vehicle, get off the shoulder or on to a grassy patch. Distracted drivers could get too close if the car is stuck where traffic will be driving.

When the car experiences a blowout, it is fine to ride on the rim to get your vehicle off the side of the road and away from any of the oncoming traffic.

Place any safety triangles or road flares a considerable distance from your car so other drivers have the chance to safely react and not come up on your vehicle too suddenly.

We hope these roadside tips from Thompson Mazda keep you safe on the highways this year.
