Roadside Stories

"Last night, we got a flat on 287 South near Bernardsville, while on our way to a wedding. I called for a tow truck through my auto insurance company, but their arrival time would be around an hour and a half. After waiting for about 20 minutes, a tow truck pulls up and a nice man named Frank asked if we needed help. I asked him if he was sent by the insurance company and he told me he patrols the highway routinely and is employed by NJDOT. He changed the spare in a few minutes. I tried to show my appreciation with a tip, but he wouldn't take it explaining it is their policy not to accept tips. So, I'm writing this as a thank you to Frank for his kindness and helpfulness last night. What a great program offered free by the State of NJ and a big thank you to State Farm Insurance for sponsoring the program!"

"I hit a very large pothole that pushed me over two lanes of traffic. Thank goodness no one was over there. It destroyed my wheel and tire, which rendered the car disabled. Kevin stopped to help me, put on my spare and I drove to a tire shop. I am so very appreciative of Kevin and the State Farm fleet! My little dog is ill and in the car. This could have ended up a disaster for both of us."
