Top 5 Common Situations in Which You May Need to Call a Roadside Assistance Company

You have been involved in a motor-vehicle accident and your car is severely damaged. If you are not at fault for what happened, you should collect the insurance details of the other vehicle owner and get him/her to pay for the towing service that you need. You are in the middle of nowhere, have a flat tire and do not carry a spare one with you. Of course, you book roadside assistance only if you are fully insured and you won’t have to pay for it, otherwise it is a smarter idea to call a friend and ask him to bring you a spare tire. It will be much cheaper. You have a major problem with your engine and your car refuses to start. Of course, if this problem occurs while you are still at home, you will not have to call a tow truck but can simply ask your mechanic to come on site and check out what the problem is.

Five Things That You Can Do to Lower Your Auto Insurance Rates

By the formal definition of horsepower, a real horse musters only 0.7 horsepower. (One horsepower is required to lift 33,000 pounds by one foot in 1 minute). Self-driving cars could positively regulate the highway traffic by calculating better the distance between moving automobiles. They can also ease urban congestion by automating the search for parking, which usually causes most of the traffic in any central part of a big town. The contact patches (which are the areas of the tires which actually touch the road at any given moment) cover an area of just 100 square inches for an average family sedan. When you book a towing assistance service in an area which is out of the state where you live at or where you are going, you have to be prepared that the tow truck will take you to the nearest auto repair shop and will leave you there, instead of taking you back home or to your final destination. There is hardly ever an insurance company that is willing to cover long-distance towing expenses, so unless you pay extra for it, your car won’t be delivered to a mechanic of your...
