Get off the Road:
• If you are driving and something happens to your vehicle, move your car off the road safely and quickly.
• Avoid stopping your vehicle in traffic or dangerous place that is hard to see such as blind curve, bridges, narrow roads or the crest of a hill.
• Look for a rest stop, emergency lane, wide shoulder, exit or parking lot.
Display a distress signal:
• If you need police help, tie a white cloth to the antenna, radio or to the door handle. You can also raise the hoods or hang the cloth out of the top of the door.
• You can also put your hazard lights on if it’s dark or foggy. This will let people know you have got car issues.
Don’t leave the car:
• Many traffic safety experts recommend that you remain in the vehicle and keep your seat belt on. If another vehicle crash or any other worst happens you will have the safety of the car to protect you.
• You should only leave the vehicle until you have safely moved it out of the flow of traffic.
