How to Stay Safe While Waiting for a Towing Company to Arrive, Byron, Wisconsin

Whether or not you’re in a hurry, few frustrations compare to a breakdown on the road. Fortunately, many towing companies work around the clock to rescue stranded motorists as quickly as possible. Even with a fast tow, though, there are potential hazards to avoid as you wait. Here are some tips to keep you safe. 

Safety Tips For Getting Your Car Towed

1. Pull Over as Far as Possible

You never know where your car will die, but it is important to pull over as far out of the main roadway as possible. In addition to making it easier and safer for tow truck drivers, you will prevent car accidents caused by other vehicles on the road. If you are in an area within city limits, try to pull into a parking lot or gas station before the engine dies. Otherwise, look for a flat, isolated area away from steep road curves and pull over to the shoulder. 

2. Turn on Your Hazard Lights towing

Let other drivers know you are having car trouble by switching on your hazard lights as soon as your car starts begins to struggle. In addition to notifying other drivers, the flashing lights make it easier for tow truck drivers to locate you. 

3. Stay Inside the Vehicle

Although you might be tempted to wait outside the vehicle, it’s much safer to remain inside until the towing company arrives. With safety features like locks, airbags, and a reinforced steel structure, you’ll be much safer from oncoming cars and other dangers.
