Having your rig break down is always stressful. If you find yourself in this position, especially on a major roadway or jam-packed highway, look for an emergency lane to pull into so you can stop more safely or pull over onto the hard shoulder.
Being stranded on the shoulder of the road can be extremely dangerous so pull over as far to the right as safely possible. Traffic zooming by creates a whole new level of danger and is the most common cause of collision and other injuries.
If you find yourself broken down in any situation, high traffic or otherwise, be alert. Stay in your rig as long as possible & call for a tow.
The coronavirus continues to be top of mind as we practice physical distancing and try to keep each other healthy and safe. Big Rig Towing not only makes sure that its staff are fully trained in traffic safety and recovery methods when on the scene, but have been instructed on best hygiene practices to ensure the safety of themselves and our customers when called to a big rig break down.
