“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!”

“My son was broken down on I-75 with a flat tire. The 18 wheelers were about to blow his car off of the jack so we called my insurance roadside for a tow truck. While we were on a LENGTHY hold with tow service, I noticed the car was not rocking back-and-forth anymore. When I looked up, there was a State Farm truck with lights on and cones lined up behind us making traffic move over. This gentleman just appeared out of nowhere like the agent on the commercials! If your rates are as good as your assist patrol is, I will be switching to State Farm. Thank you, State Farm and thank you, Ohio Department of Transportation.”

“Mario came to my rescue last week. I had a flat tire and he pulled up right behind me and immediately asked if he could help. He tried to put air in the flat tire. When that didn't work, he then said that he'd just change it for me. Words cannot say how much I appreciate his assistance that day. I was on my way to meet someone for an important delivery of toys to sick children for Christmas. If it wasn't for Mario pulling up right behind me at that moment and for helping me with my tire, I would have been extremely late. I love that the state of Connecticut and State Farm offer this service! Thank you so much, MARIO! I hope you and your family have a great Holiday!”

“Martin! Martin came and saved my day for me. I was on I-71 with a flat tire. I was struggling to get the jack up so I can change the tire. Martin came out of nowhere and changed it for me! He also put my tire back into the trunk. He went above and beyond when he filled up my spare tire and roped my trunk shut. I was in a car wreck earlier that day and didn't realize until I got the flat that my trunk wasn't going to close because I got rear ended. He was a very sweet and kind man and he saved me today. Thank you so much, Martin and thank you, Assist Patrol!!!”

“I was stopped on the side of the road assisting a friend whose car had broken down. Lawrence saw our cars on the side of the road and stopped to offer assistance. He helped my friend determine what she needed. He shared information about *HP and IMAP Assistance with me that I had no idea was available. He also made sure I could safely leave after he assisted my friend as I had had my blinkers on while I waited with my friend. Since meeting Lawrence, I have told several friends about the services he provided and how much it meant to learn about this program.”

“James was there for me. My car slowed to a crawl and finally stopped. My alternator died. I pulled over to the side of the road and whispered: ‘Help me, Lord.’ I began to think what are my options. As I was thinking... I saw a State Farm truck pull up behind me. James got out as I did. He suggested a repair place down the road. He said he could take me there and then I could have my car towed there. James saved my day and was a true professional. He was the answer to my prayer. Thanks, James!”

“We were traveling in a rental car for the holiday and suddenly had a flat tire. We were sitting on the side of the road trying to figure out what to do for no more than five minutes before Johnny pulled up behind us. He saved our holiday! He came out of his truck upbeat and ready to help. He helped us locate the spare on our rental car and brought out his equipment to take off the old flat tire and put the new one on. He even checked the tire pressure first and make sure everything was safe and secure. He was so patient, kind and gracious and took all the safety precautions for himself and us. He made getting a flat tire more stress-free than I could ever imagine. We are so grateful and so happy to know about *HP. What a great service! Although, if we never need to use it again, I could be OK with that. Thank you, Johnny!!”

“Wesley was a blessing! We ran out of gas on our way home and got stuck on a shoulder near an exit. Wesley pulled up to check on us, and after we explained what happened, he gave us enough gas to reach a gas station. We would probably still be stuck on that shoulder if it wasn't for him, so we are very grateful!”

“My wife and I were stranded on the freeway with a flat tire. We were short on budget and really did not know what to do. So, we called 911 and we were told the gentleman was on his way and sure he was. Lavar showed up and replaced the tire. Thank you, guys! Thank you so much.”

“Jerry changed my tire. I am a 65-year-old single female and had a flat on I-270 on my way to a doctor’s appointment. While I was trying to get ahold of someone to help me, he pulled up behind me and helped. He was very nice, helped me quickly, and I still got to my appointment on time. I don't know what I would have done if he hadn't come by!! He was a blessing! Thank you for this invaluable service!”

“I was pulled over on the side of the highway because my tire had blown out. I had called my roadside assistance and they told me I had an hour and a half wait for someone to reach me, which was not ideal since that was going to cause me to be very late for work. As I was waiting, Mike pulled over to check on me and see what was going on. I told him what was going on and he was kind enough to put on my spare right then and there. He ensured that I was safe and out of harm’s way and ensured that I was able to get back on the highway safely. I appreciated his help so much and wanted to send acknowledgement of his great service this morning. Thank you again, Mike!”
