If you are unable to leave your vehicle, (e.g. handicapped driver alone in the vehicle), call 112.

Alcohol is the first cause of accidents on roads in France! A reminder: the legal maximum amount whilst driving is 0.5g alcohol/litre of blood.
Drowsiness whilst driving is the number 1 cause of accidents on the motorway! Yawning? Heavy eyelids? Drowsiness creeps up on you! Stop and rest for 20 minutes.
Don't forget that a break of 10 to 15 minutes every 2 hours is indispensable in order to continue your journey in safety.
Did you know? 17 hours being activity awake is equivalent to 0.5 g of alcohol in the bloodstream!
Road safety legislation requires each driver to have a reflective jacket in the passenger compartment of their vehicle. ALiS recommends that each passenger should also have one, ready to be worn in the case of needing to leave the broken down vehicle and to wait behind the crash barriers.
However, you should not use the red warning triangles on the motorway. This piece of equipment is not adapted to this type of network. It may put you and other drivers in danger.
