III. Dealing with emergencies
 
Stall or breakdown procedure
 

If the vehicle stalls or breaks down on the highway, quickly and calmly act to protect the passengers and other motorists.

  • Stop as far off the roadway as possible.
  • If you cannot find and repair the trouble, remain with the vehicle and ask a responsible person to find help.
  • Set out appropriate flares, lamps, lanterns or portable reflectors as required by the Highway Traffic Act at a distance of approximately 30 metres (100 ft) in advance of the vehicle and 30 metres (100 ft) to the rear. They must be visible from 150 metres (500 ft) in each direction.
