You cannot prevent every potential roadside emergency. The best thing you can do is be prepared, both physically and mentally. Gengras Volvo in East Hartford, CT has some tips that you should keep fresh in your mind on your daily drives.

When something goes wrong with our vehicle, there is often the instinct to panic. You need to remain calm, however, and get your vehicle off the road as quickly as possible if you can. Finding a safe spot should be your number one priority.

Be very careful when exiting your vehicle. Just because you are on the shoulder does not mean you are safe from passing traffic. Unless it is a very quick and easy fix, you should call for assistance. For that reason, it is important to keep your cell phone charged. Having a cell phone charger as part of a roadside emergency kit is also wise.
