A big THANK YOU to Frank at the NJDOT Emergency Service Patrol (North). Last night as I was driving one of the kids to practice and I had ran over a rather large nail in the dark on the major highway near my house. I was extremely fortunate that Frank came along not 30 seconds after I had pulled over and gotten out of the vehicle to inspect the damage. Frank explained to me that the Emergency Service Patrol offerred free roadside assistance for a number of items, including flats.
Now I’ve changed a tire or two or twenty in my time – but it’s so much easier when you watch someone else do it with power tools. I had flash backs to when I was a kid helping Dad – as Frank ask me to hold the flashlight. Frank had me up and out of there in about 15-20 minutes — it took awhile because the both of us had to figure out how to get the spare tire lowered from the truck. My fault really. This is the first car I’ve ever owned that I didn’t go over every inch of the car and it’s tools.
Again- Thanks Frank!
