What to do when you get a flat tyre
If you’ve noticed a flat tyre, here is what you should do:
- Make sure your vehicle is in a safe location, away from other traffic. If you’re parked on the side of a road, make sure to turn your hazard lights on. If it’s safe to do so, wait outside of your vehicle, behind guard rails. For more tips on staying safe when you’ve broken down, click here

Avoiding a flat tyre
Tyres sometime pop due to a puncture, but can also burst from excessive wear and tear. This is why it is so important to change your tyres regularly. Make sure to check with your car’s manufacturer to find out how often your tyres should be changed.
Of course, punctures aren’t always avoidable. Rocks, nails and other sharp objects might mean you are unexpectedly stranded on the side of the road. There are several tyre puncture repair kits available on the market which can be purchased in advance to help out.
Although, if you find yourself stuck then you can get help with gotU.
