One day as I was on my way to Silver City Highway, I suddenly heard worrying noises from my car engine. After a while, I noticed smoke being emitted from the bonnet of my car. I was at a loss for what to do as I had recently started driving and this was the first time my car had broken down. However, I took a deep breath, got out of the car. Life is not predictable at all. We need to be prepared for every situation that we may face in our lives. In this article, I shall be talking about how to deal with car breakdowns on a highway. One can afford a highway car breakdown only if he or she knows what to do safely.
Certain tips to keep in mind while driving on a highway:-
- Car breakdowns are ugly things especially if I do not know anything about cars or auto repairs. What I can actually do in such a situation is safe practice
- I must activate hazard lights always.
- I must always look for a look for a safe place or spot to pull over.
I must call the Sydney towing services as soon as possible. There are quite a lot of towing services in Sydney which provide 24 hours service. Southside towing provides 24 hours service. I can, however, try to pull onto the shoulder so that I can easily avoid being a road hazard for other vehicles ad their drivers that may drive by. Once I have safely pulled onto the shoulder, I can turn on the dome lights of the vehicle and turn on the headlights. If the vehicle is way beyond any repair, the most viable option would be to call the Sydney towing or tilt tray towing which will then drag the car back to a safe place. Heavy machinery is pretty hard to transport. Container towing is basically specialized towing that helps to move automobiles or any other heavy machine parts with specific industrial equipment.

Tips to prevent breakdowns on highways:-
- Periodical servicing of the locomotive will reduce the risk of breakdowns. Many people take the servicing period for granted.
- The water and oil level should be at the correct level.
- The cooling system of the vehicle contains anti-freeze contents which must be checked regularly especially during the months of winter.
- The warning lights of the vehicle should not be ignored, and the functioning dashboard is a bare necessity.
- The battery connections must be checked, and they must not be corroded.
- Carrying of a toolkit is a must and everyone owning any vehicle should be one hundred percent confident while using the bare necessities like the wheel brace spare wheels etc.
- Removing absolutely unnecessary weight from the vehicle is a must. Overloaded vehicle leads to a lot of issues when accidents are concerned.
- Making sure of no leakage is another important factor.
- Tires must be well maintained, and proper air pressure must be maintained so that they do not deflate.
- Last but not the least, being cautious while driving is obviously a factor.
