If you see a car on the side of the road, the highest odds are that they have a flat tire. If you do end up getting a flat tire, you don’t particularly need to be towed to a shop.

They are very well equiped to handle more simple issues like this and may even be able to bring you or have a tire for you if you’re lacking a spare.

Going to crank your car and just hearing ticking – or even worse hearing nothing – just makes your heart drop. Generally speaking a jump start is enough to get your car up and running to get it where you need to go. The issue may NOT be your battery and could be something like your alternator or starter, so it’s best to just get it running and get it to someone who can diagnose the issue. All of this is to say that getting towed to a mechanic right off the bat may not the answer, a jump start could get you there and cost you less. Your average tow truck driver is certainly going to a pair of jumper cables with them, and you as a driver really should do the same.
Running out of gas is usually going to come down to bad planning in the end, regardless of what you blame it on. But sometimes it is unavoidable and it’s extremely stressful.

Nearly and tow service should be able to do this for you, get you enough gas to get you where you need to go and make sure you’re on your way safely. These days you really don’t want to risk leaving your car unattended anywhere.
