There aren’t many worse feelings when driving than having your car just die on you. It can happen for a variety of reasons, but the most important thing is making sure you get your car to a complete stop before asking for your help.
So, what should you do? Firstly, guide your car to the side of the road as smoothly as possible. The last thing you want to do is panic. Slow the car down slowly. If you lose use of your brakes, try to coast as smoothly as you can to a stop or use your emergency brake if you feel it’s safe to.
If you can get your car restarted the first place you want to go is to the nearest service station. There is something wrong with your car and you can’t ignore it! If you can’t get the car restarted, put on your emergency flashers or get out your flares and call for help.
Be safe, Lehigh Valley!
