Believe it or not, your safety is in just as much danger while you’re waiting for your tow truck as it is when a problem with your vehicle occurs (while driving).If you’re along a highway, you’ll want to step away from the traffic.
Same goes with a narrow road that experiences high traffic.
Most people will get out there and run a quick visual diagnosis of their vehicle. Trying to figure out what is wrong with your vehicle is almost on the same curiosity level as to when we receive a text or a facebook message.
Almost always, you’ll see people hanging outside their vehicles after stepping out to inspect their car or truck.
- Turn on your hazard lights.
- If you’re battery is dead, set off some road flares or place some cones near your vehicle. (if you have them)
- Always carry a flashlight, this way other drivers can see you once you step outside your vehicle.
- Call P-Town Tow Truck at 973-559-5905.
- Call a friend or family member and let them know of your situation.
- Instead of sitting in your car, stand toward the front of the passenger side of your vehicle. Hopefully it’s not raining or in a dangerous neighborhood, otherwise sit in the passenger side of your car and lock the doors.
