Safety Should Come First in a Roadside Emergency

Being prepared for a roadside emergency is important for every driver. The failure to prepare can put your safety at risk. Alfa Romeo of Oakville wants to remind you of a few tips that can keep you safe when your car has a flat or a mechanical failure.

A flat tire is a very common emergency. You should try to guide your car safely away from traffic, even if you have to drive a short distance on the tire’s rim. Take it slow and easy, and try to find an area that is firm and level. Other breakdowns can leave you stranded and prevent searching for a safer area. If this happens, secure your car and place flares or triangles well away from the vehicle. Walk to a safe place and call for assistance.
