Valdosta Police are offering some tips in case you have to pull over on the side of the road because of a flat tire or other vehicle related issues when traveling this Summer. 

Officer Vernotis Williams, Sr. reminds people to always use caution when pulling over for any reason. "Try your best to pull over, while signaling, to the side of the road where you can properly check and change any tires or problems you may have."

He also reminded people to look around before getting out of their car. "Before exiting your vehicle, make sure traffic has stopped," said Williams. 

Williams said one of the best things people can do to stay safe on the roads this Summer though is check their car before hitting the road to decrease the chance of having to pull over at all.
