AAA Announces Surprisingly High Statistic On Number of Stranded Drivers to be Rescued During the Holidays. Large Number of Drivers expected to be in “Lost Car Key No Spare” Situations:
With the summer holiday driving season now in full swing since Mother’s Day and Memorial Day and leading into the upcoming Father’s Day and the July 4th holiday weekends, AAA expects they will help some 10 million stranded motorists over the summer season. Even more surprising is that AAA expects a large number (almost 100,000) of motorists will require assistance due to having a “lost car key no spare” situation on their hands. In addition to helping these drivers dealing with such a “self-inflicted” problem as key loss, the motor club will be helping thousands with battery replacements, flat tires, and on the spot jump starting emergencies and towing assistance ranging from stalled or stopped vehicles to after-accident car removal. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day (used as the traditional beginning and ending markers of the Summer driving season), AAA expects it will aid nearly 10 million car owners.
Some Common Sense – The Biggest Headaches Are the Most Easily Avoided:
Perhaps the most frustrating of all of the types of roadside headaches that are expected to afflict summer motorists are the types of problems resulting from the direct negligence of the driver’s themselves. Most prevalently, these scenarios related directly to poor maintenance upkeep habits on the part of car owners who are undertaking long trips with inadequately maintained vehicles. “Whether traveling or near home, the best way to avoid your vehicle leaving you stranded is with a little preventative maintenance,” said John Nielsen, AAA director of auto repair and buying services. “Taking care of your vehicle now can not only prevent the hassle of a breakdown, but also can cost far less than a major repair that might be needed if vehicle upkeep is ignored.” That being said, the most easily avoided type of summer road hassle (lost car keys) can be proactively remedied by keeping better care of your car keys and in being sure to maintain a spare key so that you can avoid being in a “lost car key no spare” emergency.
