As per Forbes, if you have a car that is old, having a good roadside assistance plan is important. This is because your odds of getting stuck on the roadside because of faults are two times more as compared to new vehicles and the odds of you requiring a tow service are four times higher than the new vehicles.
While the facts shared above are for the old vehicles, they don’t exempt the new and fairly new vehicles with an age of 3 or 5 years from the roadside assistance scenario. The rising popularity of road trips, all-girls trips and weekend getaways, etc. are motivating people to think more about their safety and security on the roads.
Further, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the widespread of life-threatening diseases like black fungus and white fungus, sanitation and hygiene are becoming of extreme importance. You just cannot depend on the common workshops for all kinds of repairs, as most of them are closed due to the pandemic. Likewise, you just cannot rely on the vehicle insurance plans only for your and your vehicle’s safety while driving on the road.
With the nationwide lockdowns, there are many local businesses that are affected as well.
While the situation is not going to be as alarming as it is now, it is surely a mighty persuasive nudge for all of us to invest in some robust, reliable, and comprehensive roadside assistance plan.
