If your car breaks down on the side of the road, the most important thing you can do is not panic. If possible, coast to the side of the road, far away from any curves, which will increase your visibility. Turn on your blinkers as well. Look for a landmark, mile-marker, intersection or address to properly communicate your location.
Assess your car's status, and, if possible, determine why the car stopped running. You may be tempted to examine the engine or change a tire, but this is very dangerous. Instead, either sit in your car or walk further from the road. The most important thing is your safety.

First, if you find yourself in a dangerous location, you should call 911 to communicate your situation and let them know you are calling a towing company. If you feel unsafe ask them to send out an officer to help with traffic.
Finally, call for roadside assistance. A tow truck may be necessary to take your car from the road to a mechanic. In some situations, your car battery may need a jumpstart to get your vehicle running. This can be caused by cold weather or a battery draining for reasons like leaving the lights on or the door open. For instances where a tire was damaged, a tire change can be all you need to resume your drive. Roadside assistance can also help you if you've been locked out of your car.
