  • I like your idea of keeping your phone free. My sister was once on the side of the road waiting for the towing company to come help her. She explained how glad she was that she had her cell phone. It allowed her to first contact the company and then it allowed her to call her husband. We are pretty fortunate that we have cell phones to help us. Thanks for the wonderful tips on staying safe while on the side of the road.

  • I really like how you explained that, “When your vehicle stopped working and you stuck in the middle of the road, you need to find a right and safe place to park your vehicle.” I agree because you do not want to cause an accident by being in the way. The other day my car broke down in the middle of the highway. Was I supposed to get out and push it to the side when cars are flying by?

  • My little sister just started driving, and I am always concerned about her safety. I will make sure she reads these tips and is aware of what to do if she needs a towing service. I especially like tip 2, to use warning sign so other vehicles are aware of you. Thanks for helping to keep us safe!
