Survey Reveals Most Every American Driver Has Been Stuck on the Side of the Road

We’ve all been there. You’re on the road just a few hours from your destination with the kids peacefully asleep in the backseat. Soon you’ll be in summer vacation bliss. Then it happens – the car engine putters and shuts off. You’re stranded on the road in an unfamiliar area and not sure what to do.

Far too often drivers find themselves stuck on the side of the road. A recent survey commissioned by Allstate Roadside Services, found an overwhelming majority (95 percent) of drivers have experienced at least one situation where their vehicle became disabled or undrivable. Engine problems or a flat tire, even running out of gas, temporarily derailed the summer vacation or everyday road trip.

Well, Allstate Roadside Services wants to make it easier for stranded motorists to get the help they need by launching the Good Hands Rescue℠ Mobile App and Website – a new mobile experience to help easily request and receive roadside assistance through a smartphone. Once service is requested, a provider is dispatched and the consumer gets an estimated time of arrival, cost for the service and can even track the provider’s in-route status so they’re confident help is on the way.
