What Should You Do When a Car is Stopped in the Shoulder?

When you're driving on the highway, you might see that another car is stopped on the shoulder of the road. The vehicle might've broken down, or maybe the driver just needed a quick break from driving. No matter why they are stopped, you should respect their space.

When passing a car parked on the shoulder of a road, try to get over one lane. It can be terrifying to have cars flying past you at 70 miles per hour only a few feet away. When you get over into the next lane, you are giving the parked car space. If you can't get across, at least slow down to about 15 miles per hour below the speed limit.

If you have any questions about the legal side of this issue or have any car-related questions at all, feel free to visit Sands Ford of Pottsville anytime. Our staff would love to help you out.
