Multiple state agencies have come together to provide guidance to motorists to keep them and others safe in the event of an emergency incident, minor vehicle crash while traveling, or a vehicle breakdown.
The most important reminder is the need to use caution and common sense –because every incident is unique. To be ready for the unexpected, motorists and passengers are encouraged to:.
• Prepare their vehicle in advance to avoid and minimize emergencies,
• Assess the situation when a roadside emergency occurs,
• Use good judgment in deciding how to respond, and
• Stay vigilant for other motorists because roadside emergencies are fluid situations that can change in an instant.
