What do if your car breaks down
From quiet country roads to busy freeways, there’s never a good time to break down.
Breaking down is always an inconvenience, especially on your way to work, catching a flight or on a road trip, but it can also put your life in danger.
An average of three Australians a year were killed in emergency lanes in the 10.5 years to November 2010, most often by heavy trucks. Busy highways and country roads with narrow shoulders and tight corners are also some of the most dangerous places to break down.
