“Whenever I took a trip with my family and we broke down, my father would take out a piece of bailing wire and get us rolling again. Stuff happens and it is all part of the adventure!”
Norman Rockwell couldn’t have visualized a better picture of a family vacation. The idyllic image of your father’s pipe smoking head, stuck under a car hood, fixing a water pump with chewing gum, foil wrappers, and hose clamps is very compelling. The reality of the situation would more likely be a car stuck on the apron of a six-lane highway, with traffic whizzing by, inches away from the door. A red light would be blinking on the dash and the engine would be disabled by a computer code. Your only hopes would be: wait for the highway patrol to find you, call 911 and ask a stranger for help, or pull out your smart phone and call a towing service to come “sometime” and get you, and then take you somewhere for a repair. You’ll never know when you’ll need emergency travel assistance.
In 1960 a car engine had just a few requirements to run. A battery to provide spark, a radiator to keep the engine cool, gasoline, a throttle, and lastly some form of brake. There were probably seven or eight wires attached between the car and the engine. A plier, a hammer, and a flat screwdriver was all that was needed for most repairs.
Today you need a degree in computer science just to set the car’s clock.
That’s why it is so important to equip your car with the best protection you can truly use. A quality Emergency Travel Assistance Plan that allows you to summon reputable help from a source you know and trust.
