Your safety is the primary concern. If you break down on the road, please take care to ensure the safety of you and your passengers.
1. Pull off the road.
Maneuver your vehicle as far off the road as possible. If you cannot pull over, put emergency flashers on immediately and exit your vehicle safely. Don’t push your vehicle; get to safety right away.
2. Note your vehicle’s location.
Identify any landmarks, road signs, buildings, or mile markers.
3. Alert other motorists.
Oncoming cars – especially those at high speed – pose a danger. Always turn on your flashers, even in the daytime, raise the hood and tie a brightly colored item to the door handle.
4. Call AAA and provide all the necessary information.
It’s always helpful to program the AAA Emergency Road Service number into your phone in case you need it: (800) 222-4357.
5. Stay with your vehicle
If you are away from traffic, its safest to stay with the vehicle until help arrives. Keep doors locked and windows closed.
