How to Handle a Roadside Emergency

When you encounter a roadside emergency in Fremont, it’s important to know how to conduct yourself. At Advantage Lincoln, we’re here to provide you with a few tips to keep you as safe as can be.

The first thing you want to do is get as far away from traffic as you can. If there’s an emergency lane, pull into that. Otherwise, pull onto a grassy area. This way, you’re away from the highway where moving cars are. Put your hazard lights on, too, so that other drivers know where you are.

Call for assistance as soon as you are able. This call can be made to another driver that you know, roadside assistance, or even to the non-emergency police department number. If a driver that you don’t know stops to help, do not open your doors. Instead, crack the window and ask for them to call for help.
