My two wheeler broke down mostly during the odd times... either in the scorching sun or rainy season or in the night. I got scared couple of times and cried like a baby. Most of us get irritated and curse the first face we see in the morning!! I realized that its important to follow some steps whenever there is a break down.
- Stay calm and drink some water if you have it
- Check your fuel tank incase the reading meter is not properly and you know the problem.
- If the above case is ruled out, check your phonebook contacts for any mechanic number and call him up
- If the above doesnt work out, look at the surroundings and find out the nearest mechanic shop by asking strangers.
- And most important, its important to learn some basics of vehicle and the general problems that can arise.
- And last thing, give your vehicle for servicing for every 4 months.
The lessons learnt while driving are worth remembering for whole life. In the end, stay calm, drive carefully and follow rules sometimes(never on hyderabad roads).
Have a safe drive everyday!!!!
