What to Expect When You’re Getting Towed

Nothing will derail a summer road trip faster than blowing a flat or having your vehicle break down on the side of the road. Setting aside the anxiety of potentially losing well-earned vacation time, you have to then worry about what happens when you call for a tow. Fortunately, if you know what to expect when you’re getting towed, you’ll realize that there really isn’t all that much to worry about.

Your first step should always be to make sure that you’re visible — especially if it’s darkening out or there’s inclement weather. Turn on your hazards and break out your flares or other emergency indicators to make sure that your presence is clear to other drivers and the tow truck.

While you wait, you’ll want to make sure that you have all the essential paperwork — license, registration, proof of insurance, and any membership information for an applicable roadside assistance program. Remain in the vehicle until the tow truck driver arrives and don’t try to make any repairs you don’t know how to perform correctly.
