How to Avoid a Collision in a Vehicle Emergency in Cockeysville

No one is ready for a vehicle emergency on the road. But, when it happens, you have to know what to do to avoid a collision. A common roadside emergency is a tire blowout. The first thing you need to do is get to a safe place. An emergency lane or grassy area just off the road is ideal.

Once your vehicle is in a safe place turn on your hazard lights to let traffic know your vehicle is disabled. Place flares and triangles around your vehicle to provide better visibility. Place the flares and triangles a good distance from your vehicle.

One way to avoid a tire blowout on the road is to have your tires inspected, rotated, and replaced if needed. Tire rotation should be done several times a year. Not only is it good practice, but it can identify issues before a tire blows. Get your tires inspected at Bill Kidd’s Toyota before your next road trip.
