It has happened to us all. You are driving down the road, as normal as ever. Suddenly, your car stalls and stalls, until it comes to a complete stop by the side of the road. If it’s your first time breaking down, you will probably panic and call your parents first. It can be nerve-wracking when you breaks down on the side of the road, especially in a very busy area.
Fear not! There are hundreds of car-owners in the same place as you. In this video, we will look at the first steps to take if you find yourself broken down on the side of the road.
First of all, you need to roll to a complete stop on the side of the road. Pull of into a side street if you can, and put on your hazard lights to signal to others that something is wrong and you are stopped. Next, you need to determine where exactly you are. If you are going to call a 24 hour towing service, you need to know where your location is. Look for street signs or landmarks of note. If you are on the highway, look at the nearest mile marker and use that as a location gauge. Then, call a car towing service.
