Roadside emergencies happen every day to one driver or another in New Bern, NC. It can be something as simple as a tire low on air or a complete breakdown. Knowing what to do in an emergency can make a big difference in how quickly and easily you can get through this stressful circumstance.

Unless your vehicle actually stops running in the middle of the road, the first thing to do is pull over on the side of the road as far as you can go. Put on emergency flashers and put out flares if you have them. Call for help, and stay locked in your vehicle until help arrives.

It’s alarming how many drivers do not have a roadside emergency kit in their vehicles. These can be very helpful in getting through this stressful time. Your kit should consist of things like batteries, extra water, snacks, jumper cables, flashlight, first aid kit, fix-a-flat kit, and tool kit.
