General breakdown procedures 2

Posted on January 25, 2013 at 6:01 AM
Calling for help
• If possible, use the nearest emergency phone
• On motorways, blue and white marker posts show the direction of the nearest phone 
• The phones connect directly to the police control centre and are numbered so that you 
  can be easily located
• If using your mobile phone, refer to the new blue rectangular Driver Location Signs, 
  which detail the road number (e.g. M1), direction of travel and precise location

Motorway breakdown procedures
If your vehicle develops a problem on the motorway:
• Leave at the next exit if possible and stop at the next service area
• If you must stop immediately, pull onto the hard shoulder and stop with wheels 
  turned to the left, away from traffic
• Park as close to the left as possible and try to stop near an emergency phone
• Put on your hazard lights and turn on side lights in poor visibility
• DO NOT use your warning triangle on the hard shoulder
• NEVER attempt repairs yourselfWaiting for help
If you must stop on the hard shoulder:
• ALWAYS get out of the vehicle 
• Make sure you and all passengers exit the vehicle on the left-hand side 
• Walk off the road – up the embankment if there is one, or climb over the crash barrier 
  into a field if possible
• NEVER try to cross lanes to the other side of a motorway

Be prepared
• Carry a charged mobile phone (switched off and out of reach while driving)
• Carry an emergency kit, including warm and high visibility clothing, a torch, water 
  and a reflective triangle
• Ask your employer to confirm what, if anything, is provided by them
