Tips for Handling an Automotive Emergency

By nature, breakdowns are unexpected. Prepare yourself with skills and tools beforehand so you don't prolong the inconvenience of it any longer than necessary.

Practice changing your car's tire so you're familiar with what methods and tools you'll need. Keep these tools together with other handy items like jumper cables, a flashlight, emergency flares, and a first aid kit. If you live in a wintry climate, add a bag or two of kitty litter to your trunk for a little extra weight and to use for traction if you get stuck. When the temperatures begin to climb, keep adequate water on hand in your car to keep everyone hydrated while you wait for help. Make sure to keep your car well away from passing cars if possible, placing warning markers to alert other motorists. Keeping current with routine maintenance on your car will help to avoid breakdowns.
