Nothing will put a damper on your Thanksgiving weekend more than breaking down or getting into an automobile accident. Drive extra safe during this busy travel weekend and make sure to sign up for roadside assistance, too, if you don’t have it already. This is an excellent service to have year-round, but it is particularly helpful when on holiday travel. Trinity Automotive explains more below.
You Never Know…
Let’s be completely honest: You never know what’s going to happen, especially when traveling on a busy holiday weekend. You could be the safest driver in the world and still get hit by an unsafe driver. You could keep your vehicle maintained and still breakdown for some reason. Roadside assistance prepares you for mishaps so you can get help and, in some cases, get back on the road right away.
Things That Can Go Wrong
The most common services roadside assistance offers address the most common things that can go wrong on the road. For example, towing services not only remove your car from danger if you’ve been in an automobile accident but can also take your vehicle to an auto service shop if it’s broken down and cannot get started again or is unsafe to drive. Other things that can go wrong include
- Locking your keys in the car
- Getting a flat tire
- Running out of gas
- A dead battery
Roadside assistance services are prepared to help you in any of the above circumstances. They can get you into your car without damaging it should you lock yourself out. They can also change a flat, bring you enough gas so you can make it to the next service station, bring water or coolant if you’re overheating, and jumpstart a dead battery. They can get you back on your holiday travels.
Why This Is Important on Thanksgiving Weekend
Thanksgiving week/weekend is one of the most traveled holidays of the year. Millions of people get in their cars and drive and most drive 50 miles or more each way. What this means for you if driving is your plan is that you’ll be dealing with abnormal road conditions. The highways will be crowded, you will get stuck in traffic, and people will be drinking and driving, especially on Thanksgiving night.
Many dangerous things can happen during Thanksgiving commutes so call Trinity Automotive in White Bear Lake, MN, to sign up for roadside assistance for added protection.
