There are some things in life that eventually happen to a large percentage of people no matter how hard you try to avoid it. Statistics show that most people get in a car accident at some point in their life. Many people will run their car out of gas as well. According to AAA, four million Americans each year lock their keys in their car each year. No one wants these things to happen but inevitably they do. If you lock your keys in your car do you know what you should do?
Call 911 if Child or Dog is Locked in Car
One of the scariest situations that can happen when your keys are locked in the car is that you have a small child or pet locked inside your car. This can be especially scary if it is a hot day. If you have a small child or pet inside your car you will want to call 911 immediately. Small children can only survive for so long in a hot car. Emergency services can help you make sure that your child or pet are safe.
Are You Really Locked Out of Your Car?
Many people panic when they realize that they have locked their keys in their vehicle. You want to stay calm and think about your options. Sometimes people call for help just to find out that the car is not locked or not all of the windows are rolled up and they could have gotten into their car. Make sure that you are indeed locked out of your car.
Spare Replacement Car Key
If you have a spare key for your car quickly think about where it is. Lots of times people have a spare key for their car in their home. Is anyone home that can bring you the spare key to your car? If you do not have a spare key for your car now is an optimal time to think about getting one made. Having a spare key can prevent you from needing to call for assistance that will end up costing you money.
Know Location Before Calling for Roadside Assistance
You will want to make sure that you get familiar with your surroundings before you start calling for roadside assistance. Take a look around and see what is nearby. If there is a gas station you may want to go and check to see if they have any tools that may help you get into your locked vehicle. You will need to know where you are before you call for help. When you do call for help you will need to give them the cross streets of where you are at.

You will need to tell them the make, model, and color of your car.
