Put hazard lights on

Putting your hazard lights on should always be the first step you take when you know you have had a breakdown, or you are currently moving and your vehicle is breaking down. This is the most effective way at alerting other drivers and the public that your vehicle is not operating correctly and to take caution around you – and if possible, stay away.

Having your hazard lights on also allows others to give you more assistance with moving lanes and eventually your vehicle off the road.

Make sure you’re in a safe place

Once you have your hazard lights on, it’s imperative you get off the road if possible. Other drivers will avoid you to make this an easier task and you locate a safe location for both your vehicle and yourself. A safe place is one where other drivers cannot come into contact with you, you are not obstructing anything, and your vehicle can be seen.
