Do you actually know what you should when you car break down? In fact your car is a very smart machine. You should be able to know that it start sending out signals to you before it actually break down. So last night, my battery light came on. So I was thinking I will send to the workshop in the morning. Alas.. our dear grey car had other lights coming on and I was losing control of my steering wheel as well.
Anyway here are the MUST you should do when your car breaks down.
- Turn on your indicator lights and slow down. Park at somewhere safe.
- Get OUT of the car
- Set up the breakdown sign OR alternatively, open up your boot to indicate that your car is stationary
- Call your mechanic or tow truck
- Wait for tow truck to come and pass the car key to them. Stand at somewhere safe.
Lesson learnt: listen to your car.
