Vancouver roadside assistance is sometimes just necessary. Even if you’re a driver with decades of experience or you drive one of the nicest, safest cars available, the risk of a breakdown or accident is always there. It’s just the nature of driving. Many people don’t know what to do if they experience roadside issues, especially if they see another fellow driver stuck on the side of the road with a broken-down vehicle.

If you’ve ever had a broken-down vehicle, you’ll know the feeling of relief when someone pulls over to help you or jumpstart your battery with their cables.

Here are 4 things you can do if you see another driver who needs help:

Carefully Pull Over

If you see a vehicle that’s pulled over on the side of the road or the highway, it might be dangerous to abruptly stop and pull over. Carefully assess the situation. If it warrants your help, slowly pull over even if you have to do so ahead of the vehicle in question, and proceed by backing up.

If you see the vehicle has its hood up and the driver is looking at smoke, pull over to see what they’re dealing with. If you see them fussing with the engine, they might have a dead battery. If you’ve jumpstarted a car before and have cables, they could probably use your help! If you see someone who is injured or in dire need of emergency medical assistance, pull over and call 911 right away!
