FAQ's by Pink Towing
What to do if your car breaks down on the highway?
You are driving down the highway when suddenly you have car trouble. Our Towing experts of Pink Towing of Santa Monica suggest the following measures when your car breaks down or has a flat
tire on the highway.
At the first sign of car trouble, gently and smoothly take your foot off the accelerator. Do not brake hard or suddenly. Carefully work your vehicle toward the breakdown lane or the side of the road. If you are on an interstate, try to reach an exit. Signal your intentions to drivers behind you. If it is necessary to change lanes, watch your mirrors and the traffic around you closely.
We dare you to follow Towing West Hollywood instructions:

Flat tire instruction from Pink Towing_90069
When you have a flat tire, be certain that you can change it safely without being close to
traffic. If that is possible, change the tire as you normally would. Remember, safety must
take precedence over your schedule or whatever other concerns you may have.
However, when the car is beyond repair, it is best to get professional help call us 323-487-9838. Do not try to flag down other vehicles. Raise your hood and tie something white to the radio antenna or
hang it out a window so police officers or tow truck operators will know help is needed.
Don't stand behind or next to your vehicle. If the car is in the roadway, stand away from
the vehicle and wait for help to arrive.
If your car is safely out of traffic, wait inside the vehicle with the doors locked. Use your
cellular phone contact 90069_Towing dispatch office, here at Pink Towing of Santa Monica we are available for you 24/7. If someone stops and offers to help, open the window
slightly and ask them to call the police.
Watch for a uniformed police officer or other emergency personnel. All interstate
highways and major roads are patrolled regularly. Also, some highways have special
"call-for-help" phones.Anyways, don't forget that we are available for you all over West Hollywood and Los Angeles. Don't think twice and call us 323-487-98-38 We are on call 24/7.
It is inadvisable to walk on an interstate, especially during inclement weather. However,
if you can reach a source of help on foot, without jeopardizing your physical or personal
safety, try the direct approach by walking. Keep as far from traffic as possible and walk
on the right side of the roadway. Never attempt to cross a multi-lane, high speed roadway.

Flat towing is an alternative to the two main towing solutions that are most often used in the profession of car towing. Instead of using a flatbed to tow a vehicle, or to have that auto pulled along with two-wheel car towing, As the name indicates, the automobile that is being towed has all its wheels flat on the ground. Flat towing is an excellent option when you want a four-wheel drive car to be towed away.
