Safety Tip of the Day

Everyone should have the following numbers programmed in their phones: 713-CALL-MAP (Motorist Assistance Program if something happens on the freeway outside the Safe Clear zone in Harris County); 713-222-PEAT (Patron Emergency Assistance Team) if you are on one of the toll roads.

The day before Thanksgiving I got a flat on th e Hardy Toll Road. People were going past me at 70+ mph. There was no way I was going to change a tire (ummm...do I even know how to change a tire??). Called the PEAT team. They had someone there within 7 minutes (timed them) and he had my tire changed within 5.

Montgomery County (where I currently live) has a service as well.
