No one likes to be stranded on the side of the road when their car breaks down. It can actually be dangerous. Let's look at some tips you can use to keep safe when you have a roadside emergency.

Get to a safe spot. Drive into the emergency lane or onto a grassy shoulder. If you cannot get the car to a safe spot, get yourself and your passengers out of the vehicle and off to the side quickly. If you have a tire blowout, drive it to a safe location before stopping. Replacing a rim is better than compromising your safety.

Place hazard signs and flares at a distance from the vehicle. This helps prevent other drivers from mistaking your hazard lights as taillights. Never open the window to a stranger. Keep your car in good shape with the help of the service department here at O.C. Welch Lincoln in Hardeeville, SC.
