Stay Safe While You’re Roadside

Well the first thing that a lot of people do is get on the phone with triple A to get some assistance, however, not everybody has AAA roadside assistance. If you do have AAA then your in luck because they will have a tow truck on it’s way pronto, they claim that their average wait time is less than thirty minutes. If that’s the case then all you have to do is wait. Now if you are on the side of the street you are probably fine but if you are stuck on the freeway then the California Highway Patrol recommends that you stay in your vehicle, keep your emergency lights flashing and keep your safety belt buckled.
