General breakdown procedures

 It’s vital that you know what to do in the event of a breakdown.

• Most breakdowns are due to poor vehicle maintenance and could have been avoided
• Work with your employer to ensure your vehicle is regularly serviced and checked, including wipers, tyres and fluid levels
• Report faults immediately
• Ensure you understand your vehicle warning lights

General breakdown procedures

• If possible, avoid stopping in dangerous places such as roundabouts and corners
• Switch on your hazard lights
• If it is safe to do so, drop your speed, continue driving and try to pull off the road completely, 
  or onto a straight section of road
• If you have to stop on a road, display your emergency triangle at least 45 metres behind 
  your vehicle (don’t do this on a motorway)
• Do not attempt to fix your vehicle yourself by the roadside. Call your employer’s
  designated breakdown service
• Switch off your engine and wait in a safe place, away from traffic
