8 things to do when your car breaks down on a roadway (NMA Mention)

If you are not able to find a good place to stop, contact help using your cellphone or in-car service. Do not try to flag down other vehicles – doing this on a high-speed road with no shoulder could result in a larger accident. If you’re in an emergency situation, or are not sure who to contact, call 911 or the local police for help, says theĀ National Motorists Association.
