Roadside Stories

“Ranger? Antonio is an Angel sent by heaven, as I saw his truck and the lights flashing in my rear-view mirror. I had just gotten on 202 off San Pablo headed East when my left front tire went flat and shredded. I pulled into the little Emergency Lane on my left and was pondering my dilemma as Antonio pulled up behind me. He called a tow truck to haul me out of a dangerous situation, and set up traffic cones while awaiting the tow truck. The courteous tow truck driver hauled my pickup truck off the bridge and put it down in the first shopping center. Antonio changed the tire after putting air in my flat spare and loaded the remnants of my rim destroyed tire in the pickup bed. In addition, my battery died and Antonio restarted my truck and sent me on my way. I tried to tip Antonio and he cordially refused any money. I appreciate the Florida DOT and State Farm for sponsoring this very needed service, and Antonio for being there at the optimum moment.”

“My 18-year-old niece had a flat tire on Route 97 in Crownsville, and Marquis showed up before AAA got there. He set up cones to warn the high-speed traffic, took the spare tire and filled it with air, then quickly changed the tire. He was there less than 15 minutes and had everything fixed fine. He could not have been more professional and nicer. He would not accept my offer of a cash tip, either. He said it was not allowed. This young man was a huge help and my sister was able to cancel the AAA assistance request. The supervisor for Marquis should really thank this young man for his outstanding work; he was a lifesaver tonight on a dangerous highway on New Year’s Eve. Thank you, State Farm Assist Patrol and Marquis!”
