Safety Precautions to Observe When Changing a Flat Tire

Having a tire go flat on the road is a situation many drivers can handle with the right tools and a little work. However, it's important to be safe when you attempt to change a tire while stranded on the road.

It's important to maintain control of your vehicle when you have a flat tire while driving. Pull over and stop your vehicle as soon as it's safe to do so, preferably on level ground somewhere off the road, such as a nearby parking lot. Be sure the car is in park and that the parking brake is engaged before changing a tire.
