Emergency Safety Tips

Breaking down on the side of the road happens anywhere day or night. However, there are various ways to be prepared for the unexpected and to ensure safety. Make sure to always have a working flashlight, jumper cables, extra antifreeze, a first aid kit, water, snacks and a vehicle emergency kit available. When having to pull over, use an emergency lane or a grassy area away from traffic. Put on your hazard lights and use flares to warn other vehicles. Call for help if equipped with a mobile device. Stay in the vehicle with the doors locked and windows closed.

In the case of a flat tire, know how to use the jack and change the tire. Periodically check the condition of tires, headlights, brake and turn signals before leaving home. Consider having your vehicle inspected at our service center in Sheffield at Shoals University Kia before taking a road trip.
