Use Safe Methods during a Roadside Emergency

When you find yourself in an emergency situation on the road, it can be frustrating, upsetting and sometimes very unsafe. The first thing to remember in any emergency is safety above anything else. Many times a tire blow-out can occur while on the highway and your first reaction might be to change the flat on the side of the highway which can be very dangerous.

After you’ve safely merged to the shoulder, instead of changing the flat tire, assess the area to determine the next available exit. Immediately turn on your emergency flashers and proceed to the nearest exit using the shoulder at an extremely low speed. Never attempt to change a tire while on the highway. Additionally, if traveling a long distance, always remember to locate repair shops along your route prior to leaving for your destination from Columbus, KS.

Remember to contact Mike Carpino Ford Inc. for any vehicle service needs before or after an emergency.
