Automotive Safety: What to Do if You’re Stranded, Madison, Wisconsin

While ABRA Auto specializes in collision repair, they also care about automotive safety. Thus, they’re always giving their customers tips on how to not only avoid accident but also maintain safe practices. Here, their auto body technicians discuss what to do if you’re ever stranded on the side of the road.

What to Do if You’re Stranded on the Road

There are many reasons you might be automotivestranded on the side of the road, including an accident or a vehicle malfunction. Regardless of the cause, the first step is to get your car away from oncoming traffic. If you’re on a highway, interstate, or another high-speed road, you should also remain in your vehicle with your emergency blinkers on. Then, call a friend, relative, or professional roadside assistance. They’ll be able to tow you to safety or temporarily mend the damage until you can get to ABRA Auto. Remember to keep a portable cell phone charger in your car to avoid a dead battery in this and other emergency situations. If you don’t have a working phone and can’t safely exit your car, try signaling other drivers with a white cloth or your hand.
