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.
