When it comes to a roadside emergency, you can have a few things on hand to make the situation more manageable. Here at Reynolds Collision Center, we also recommend some additional precautions.

Whether changing a flat tire or waiting for a tow truck, it is vital that you have some type of hazard signal on. If you can, pull off the road, and turn on your hazard lights. In many situations, the flashing lights will be enough to warn oncoming drivers. The lights also help the tow truck driver spot you.

Consider picking up some reflective emergency triangles. If it is safe to get out of your vehicle, place one of these at least 10 feet behind your auto. If you are stalled on a corner, do your best to safely place another triangle on the other side of the curve.

Other handy roadside tools to have in your vehicle are a first-aid kit, jumper cables, a phone charger, and some water. When traveling, let someone know where you are going and your scheduled stops.
