Steps To Take If Your Car Breaks Down On The Highway. Vehicles can be pretty reliable when taken care of properly, but only to a certain extent. They are likely to experience some sort of problems at one point or another and that’s why you should have an idea of how to handle such situations if they do arise. What should you do if your care breaks down on the highway? We’ll give you some good advice on the proper procedure to handle such a situation. Use your hazard lights and try your best to pull onto the shoulder, so that your vehicle doesn’t become a hazard in the road.. Turn the behicle’s dome and headlights on, to make the vehicle more visible.. Ensure that your vehicle has an emergency kit inside (before you even get on the road in the first place).. Put reflective triangles behind the vehicle if you can safely do so.. There should always be a copy of the fleet’s safety and accident policy, so that you can review it. After you review it ask yourself these queistions: – “Is it safe to exit the vehicle?” – “Is the neighborhood/stretch of road safe or should caution be exercised?” – “The answers to these questions, or the obvious nature of the breakdown, will determine what to do next.” If you are in a residential or rural/low traffic area, only then should you exit the vehicle, because if you are not in such an area, you can likely heighten your risk of injuries or death.. If you are in an urban area where there is high traffic, you should stay in your vehicle and wait for assistance from law enforcement, a tow truck or your mechanic.
