“What To Do If You Get Stranded On The Highway”
Getting stranded on the highway can be a stressful and dangerous situation, but it’s important to stay calm and take the necessary steps to ensure your safety. Whether it’s a flat tire, engine failure, or a weather-related issue, being prepared can help make the experience less overwhelming. Here’s what to do if you find yourself stranded on the highway:
- Pull over to a safe location. If possible, try to get your vehicle off the road and onto the shoulder. Turn on your hazard lights to alert other drivers and make yourself visible.
- Call for help. If you have a phone, use it to call for assistance. If you don’t have a phone, try to flag down another driver for help or walk to the nearest rest stop. Dewey’s Towing & Repair can be reached at 608-362-5377 or 815-389-3032.
- “Stay in your vehicle whenever possible”. If you must exit your vehicle, do so with caution and only when it’s safe to do so.
- Stay visible. Turn on blinkers, put up flares or triangles around your vehicle to make it more visible to other drivers and rescuers.
- Stay warm. If you’re stranded in cold weather, stay in your vehicle and try to stay warm by wrapping yourself in a blanket or using any available items such as floor mats to insulate yourself from the cold.
- Be patient. Help may take some time to arrive, but staying calm and patient can help reduce stress and make the situation safer for you and others.
