Roadside Stories

“I was on I-95 between exit 38 and 39 because my radiator hose came out. The driver, John, saw that I needed help and came to assist me. I told John that I had a tow truck that was on their way so I was okay. John gave me some antifreeze, just in case, so I could drive off the highway. I could not believe that people like John exist. He was very professional and willing to help strangers. I want to say thank you to John for going above and beyond.”

“Steven pulled behind my stalled car, put out cones to warn drivers and assisted me in getting my vehicle onto a trailer. The fuel pump stopped and I was forced to pull over just beyond a curve on a busy road on a very busy evening. I made a call for assistance to my parents, but in the meantime, Steven in an Assist Patrol car pulled behind me. He put out the warning cones to alert other cars coming around the curve to be alerted. He came up and asked how he could help. He was comforting and friendly and helped in any way he could. Once my parents arrived with a trailer, Steven again came up to help us. He asked what equipment we might need and helped push my car onto the trailer. I was very thankful he arrived to help warn others to move to the outside lane. Thank you, Assist Patrol and thank you, Steven!”
