There’s no telling what could happen the minute you drive down the street. Mornings can start off fine, your mood happy, your coffee hot. But then your car dies on you in the middle of the road! While that’s not the best way to jumpstart your day, here are a few tips to make sure things don’t go from bad to worse:

  1. Turn on the lights. Activate your hazards lights. That tells other drivers on the road that you’re having problems. Also, leave the headlights on, even when you park to the side. You need to be visible so that drivers who aren’t paying that much attention can hardly miss the signs and thus keep from hitting your car from behind.

  1. Call for help. This is where it pays to have thought ahead. If you already have numbers to call, help can arrive right away. For roadside assistance in Orlando, call us. C & S Towing offers the best service possible at the most reasonable rates. We handle any type of towing needs, buy junk cars, provide roadside assistance and have complete locksmith services. We are 24/7 available, serving Volusia and Seminole Counties.

  1. Don’t cross the highway. It’s dangerous to cross the road, especially in high-traffic areas. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC reports that in 2013, pedestrian deaths in the U.S. reached 4,735. That’s about a crash-related death happening every 2 hours. In addition, pedestrians admitted to the hospital for treatment for related injuries were about 150,000.

  1. Don’t try to attempt to fix the problem on your own. Popping the hood of your car and trying to see if you can do something about the smoke coming out of your engine isn’t going to help you one bit. That’s especially true if you can’t even tell what a carburetor is from the radiator. Better wait for the pros instead. Tinkering can only make your engine problems worse.

  1. Stay inside. If you get stranded in the middle of a busy highway, the good thing about that is the certainty that help will come at any moment now. However, if your car breaks down in an unpopulated, deserted area, it’s best to lock your doors and wait inside until help arrives.

You don’t know what can happen from the minute you drive out of your garage, but being prepared can help keep you safe on the road. So know who to call. Save our number today. Visit Cnstowing.com for to know more.
