How to Stay Safe When Broken Down

If your broken down and stranded on the shoulder of the road it can be extremely dangerous. Other traffic is the most common cause of collision and other injuries. These days with distracted driving from cell phones, most often, but also tiredness and passenger interference, it only takes a moment for and accident to happen.

If you find yourself broken down in any situation, high traffic or not, be alert. Stay in your vehicle as much as possible. Pulling off onto a side road or an off ramp if think your truck has a mechanical issue is often safer than the shoulder of a highway.

Big Rig Towing makes sure that it’s teams are fully versed with traffic safety and recovery methods when on scene and can provide undivided attention and care when called to a break down or big rig accident.

Can You Tow Anything?

According to Wikipedia towing is the process of coupling one object to another, so that one can be pulled along behind the other. The towing source (lead object) is usually a truck or other motorized land vehicle. The coupling may consist of a chain, rope, bar, integrated platform, or some other means of keeping the two objects together while in motion.

Big Rig Towing often has to make use of its 75 ton rotator to lift overturned trailers and many other heavy objects related to rig accidents.

So, that being said, not just cars and trucks can be towed but almost anything that will move can be towed.

Just remember that not all vehicles are made to tow and the safety considerations of properly towing another vehicle or object cannot be understated.

When in doubt, hire a professional.
