Breakdowns are so inconvenient. The best is to keep calm and wait for help. Remember to keep your doors locked.What to do in the event of a breakdown:1 Consider your own safety first: get your vehicle off the road and as close to the side of it as possible.2 Ensure your passengers are safe and if traveling with any pets in the car, keep them under control.3 Warn other road users by using your hazard warning lights and put a warning triangle on the road at least 45 metres behind your car.4 Keep your lights on if it is dark or visibility is poor.5 Do not stand (or let anyone else stand) between your vehicle and oncoming traffic6 Wear a reflective/fluorescent jacket if you have one in your car.7 If you've called for roadside assistance, don't get out of your car. Keep the doors locked and let the window down a tiny bit. Ask to see identification and make sure the person coming to assist knows your name or reference number before getting out of the car.8 Don't get into another car with a stranger who is offering to drive you to get help.9 Alert family members of your whereabouts, give them details of road assist companies you have been in contact with.10 Keep calm, try not to panic and be observant - whatever you do, just don't take a nap while you wait.
