The driver is never free from a car breakdown on the road, an incident for which he is generally not prepared. To remedy it, there are a number of obligations to follow, as well as other tips to solve it as soon as possible.
HOW TO ACT IN THE EVENT OF A CAR FAILURE ON THE ROAD
The first step as soon as something goes wrong is to put on the hazard lights, whether the car starts to malfunction or comes to a complete stop. If you have to stop, you have to do it as close as possible to the shoulder, trying not to hinder the movement.
Using the triangles
Once the vehicle is stopped, and without removing the emergency lights, it is necessary to put on the reflective vest and exit. It is then time to place the triangles to be more easily seen by other drivers. They must be located at least 50 meters in front and behind on two-way roads. On motorways or expressways, the rear will suffice.
In addition, you must also remember to increase the distance at which they are placed if the car is stopped in an area of poor visibility or in a change of grade.
Subsequently, both the driver and the other occupants of the vehicle must move as far as possible from the road, cross the guardrail if necessary and go to where there is more security.
CALL THE ROAD ASSISTANCE SERVICE
Finally, you have to call the insurance. Although it seems an easy fault to solve, the circumstances are not the best. It is better and safer to have the roadside assistance service. As basic as the policy may be, it will protect one way or another.
