What to Do When You Need Roadside Assistance

Each year, millions of people run into issues with their car while driving. If your car has ever broken down on the side of the road, you know how it feels. But knowing what to do to keep yourself and your passengers safe, as well as who to call for help, restores your peace of mind.

First, take a deep breath. You'll be off the side of the road in no time. Then, give us a call. We promise we'll answer and send someone to you as soon as possible. When you need to be roadside rescued, follow these six steps:

  1. Pull Off the Road: The moment you suspect something may be wrong with your vehicle, it's important to pull off the main road or highway. On most roads, it's best to pull to the right shoulder. But on some highways, there may be more room on the left. If you cannot make it off the road, turn on your hazard lights. If your car breaks down in the middle of the road, exit your car and make your way to safety. Don't try to push your automobile yourself — this will only increase your risk of getting hurt.
  2. Know Your Vehicle's Location: It's important to get into the habit of monitoring your location as you drive. For our roadside rescue to work, we need to be able to find you! Make a note of any nearby buildings, road signs, exit numbers, mile markers, etc.
  3. Try to Figure Out the Problem: No matter what happens, assessing your vehicle's problem starts with staying calm. What can you see? Is there smoke coming from your hood or is your tire flat? Did your engine shut off or did you run out of gas? Maybe you locked your keys in the car. No worries. Our roadside assistance experts will be there for you. Just turn on your hazards and try to make it off the road.
  4. Alert Others Drivers: To ensure other drivers can see your vehicle, turn on your emergency hazards or tie a brightly colored cloth to your antenna or door handle.
  5. Call AAA: Using your phone, a pay phone or a borrowed cell phone, give us a call and explain your situation. We take requests 24 hours a day over the phone and through our mobile app. We'll need to know where you are and what you need (rescue, gas, battery start, keys locked in car, etc.) Remember to program our AAA number into your cell phone (800-222-4357). We also recommend writing our number down and keeping it in your glovebox in case you find yourself without your smartphone, wallet or purse.
  6. Stay With Your Vehicle: Now, all you have to do is sit back and relax. Make sure to lock your doors and close your windows for extra safety.
