Tips for handling emergencies on the road

Many things can happen when you are on the road. Being prepared in advance can make a big difference in how you handle unexpected troubles. Ultimately, the goal is to get to your destination safety. This is, obviously, never a guarantee. You have to rely on other drivers to help keep you safe as well as trust that no vehicles -- or roadway infrastructure -- have defects that lead to horrible accidents.

Most drivers in Arizona have probably heard tales about the dangers of driving while using a mobile device.
