With bad weather approaching, the chances of becoming stranded roadside become greater each day. Intense cold leads to a higher risk of engine trouble and breakdowns. Snow and icy conditions lead to an increased rate of accidents.
It goes without saying that winter months are much more dangerous to be stranded roadside. Many auto insurance policies carry with them Roadside Assistance coverage, to get help to you in these situations. Before extreme weather hits, make sure your Roadside Assistance number is accessible to you while you are driving, whether kept in your wallet, in the glove compartment, or stuck to the windshield. Taking this action can keep the ill effects of being stranded roadside to a minimum.
