Personal Safety

An average of 93 people died each day in motor vehicle crashes in 2009 – one every 16 minutes. Read about road safety tips and what to do if your vehicle breaks down.

For Your Safety
  • Keep your doors locked, safety belts buckled and children safe and secure in properly installed safety seats.
  • Don't let your gas tank fall below 1/3 tank.
  • Stay on main roads and highways, and don't forget your AAA maps!
  • Pack a flashlight, blanket and a first-aid kit. In cold climates, pack extra warm clothing.
  • If you are going on a long trip, pack an emergency ration kit of water and nonperishable food items such as fruit or granola bars.
  • When stopping for breaks, never let kids go to the restroom alone. Always lock vehicle doors, even if you'll only be gone for a few minutes.
  • Carry a cellular phone in case of emergencies.
  • Do not stop to help a disabled vehicle. Instead, call for help from a pay phone or your cellular phone.
  • If stopping during night-time travel, choose a well-lighted, populated facility. Park where your vehicle can be seen.
  • If approached by someone while your vehicle is stopped, keep your doors locked and only roll your window down enough to hear what the person is saying.

If You Break Down
  • Move your vehicle off the road safely away from traffic.
  • Stay inside your vehicle, and make all passengers stay inside, too. Keep doors locked.
  • If you can't move your vehicle off the road, ask all passengers to exit the vehicle. when it is safe to do so, and stand away from traffic.
  • If you must walk to a phone, keep your group together.
  • Raise the vehicle's hood, tie a white cloth to a door handle or use reflective triangles or flares. Warning devices should be placed far enough away from the vehicle to give oncoming traffic time to react. A good rule of thumb: 3 devices at 100, 50 and 25 yards from the vehicle - or 300, 200 or 100 feet.
  • Only roll down the window enough to ask any passersby to call police.
