If you're having car trouble

Follow these guidelines if your car breaks down:

  • Pull off the road and turn on your hazard lights.
  • Make sure you’re not in any danger. Stay at the scene, but move well away from your car if there is any chance of it being hit by another vehicle.
  • If you're not able to fix the problem yourself, call for help from a friend or from a roadside assistance service operating in your area.
  • Make sure you can be seen. Turn on your hazard lights. Turn on your parking lights in poor light, or raise your bonnet.
  • Keep a big spare bottle of clean water in your car – this will be helpful in emergencies if it's hot and you need a drink, or if you need to put water in your radiator to make it to the next town.
