If your car becomes disabled, should you walk to the nearest public place to call for help? If you have children or pets in the car, this would be a terrible idea. There are too many things that could go wrong. And why do you need to travel on foot to make a phone call? Is there not a working phone in the car? Yes, there are quite a few responsibilities to consider when thinking about roadside emergencies.

Brushing up on your defensive driving skills helps. If the vehicle suffers from maintenance issues while in motion, you should try to bring it under control and stop at a safe location.

Traffic in both directions can be dangerous. Hopefully, you won’t have to change a tire on your own, but you should possess the necessary skills. At the very least, have a can of fix-a-flat in the trunk.

Do you want to know if your car is in good working condition? Please bring it to MINI of Burlington in Shelburne, VT for an inspection and any necessary repairs.
