Broken down? Stay safe!

Breaking down can be dangerous, particularly if you’re on a motorway. Here’s what you need to do to stay safe whist you wait for Yorkshire Rescue to arrive.

  1. Make sure you’re in a safe place.
  2. Move your vehicle off the road if possible (watch out for any soft verges), or pull up onto the hard shoulder if you’re on a motorway and can’t turn off at the next exit.
  3. Make sure you stop as far to the left as you can, with the wheels turned to the left.
  4. Put your hazard warning lights on. If it’s dark or foggy, keep your sidelights on too.
  5. Stay well away from moving traffic. It’s usually safest to get out of your car (using the doors facing away from passing traffic) and wait behind a barrier.
  6. If you’re on a motorway, move up the bank if you can. Leave animals in the car.
  7. Wear a reflective jacket if you have one.
  8. Don’t put a warning triangle on the hard shoulder if you’re on a motorway – it’s not safe.
  9. Call us on 0800 432 0874 if you need our help.
  10. Don’t attempt even a simple repair if you’re on a motorway!
