Are Emergency Roadside Services running during the Coronavirus Shelter in Place?

Many services have been shut down as we are encouraged to stay home and stay safe but emergency roadside service is considered in most states to be an essential service.

AAA, for example, is still operating. They are taking extreme caution to keep people safe who might require their assistance. They are even offering free roadside assistance to healthcare workers during this time. Most towing companies are also allowed to be operating as well.

This is a great assurance should you need help, however, there are many things you can do to make sure that you don't require emergency roadside assistance. As we are all driving and traveling less, we aren't making regular trips to the service station. We aren't doing the regular car maintenance checks that we would be if we were living our regular routines.

Here are a few things to check before driving.
1. Check your gas gauge to be sure of fuel levels.2. Check your oil and coolant levels.3. Check your tire pressure.4. Check your spare tire and jack system.5. Keep some bottled water and a few snacks on hand.6. Keep disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, gloves, and masks in the car.7. Check with your auto insurance to see what type of towing package or coverage they may provide and keep that information in your car.8 If you belong to an automobile club like AAA, make sure you keep your membership card in your wallet.

These few tips should help you to avoid needing roadside assistance but accidents and other automobile failures still happen. If you are in an accident, seek immediate medical attention if necessary. Contact the authorities and if possible move your vehicle safely out of the flow of traffic. If you are injured in an automobile accident or as the result of automobile equipment failure, contact our office for a FREE consultation. We can help.
