28 Jan Safest Places to Wait for Roadside Assistance
It can be a scary experience to find yourself with a broken-down vehicle, stranded on the side of the road. It can happen for any number of reasons, including engine/transmission, gas trouble, flat tire, etc. And many of us are not prepared to handle the situation; the majority of folks don’t even travel with jumper cables. Which is one of the reasons that roadside assistance is truly invaluable. But in the span of time between calling roadside assistance and the arrival of the professional tow services of City Towing, wait in safety.
In certain instances, the best shelter, and likely the only shelter, is inside the vehicle. If your vehicle isn’t smoking and there is any apparent danger to remaining, then stay inside. Other motorists can easily see your vehicle, but they won’t always notice you. This is also true if you are stranded in a parking lot or somewhere where you don’t feel safe. Inside the vehicle with the doors locked is safer than outside the vehicle, pacing.
In the event that you have a breakdown but still have the ability to get the vehicle to the side of the road, pull as far off on the shoulder of the road as possible. Yes, the shoulder is narrow on many Montana highways, but it’s still important to open up as much of that driving lane as possible.
If you do every find yourself stranded (Hopefully you never experience a vehicle breakdown), remember that you have the professional tow services at City Towing to help twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
