If your vehicle breaks down at night, be especially cautious. There is a risk of your vehicle being hit from the rear. Turn on your emergency flashers to warn other motorists. Pull off the road as far from traffic as possible. If you have flares or emergency warning triangles, place some behind your vehicle to provide additional warning to motorists. To place them or to try to repair your vehicle, exit your vehicle on the passenger side, not on the driver's side because you could be hit by an approaching vehicle.
