If your vehicle fails you in busy traffic, find the safest area to pull over. Do not try to investigate the problem or repair the vehicle yourself. Contact your management team and wait for assistance. If you have to exit the vehicle, do so on the non-traffic side of the road.

If you are forced to stop on a hard shoulder, position your vehicle in the safest area, exit from the non-traffic side, contact your supervisor and wait for instruction.
