5 Reasons to Pull Over

There can be a variety of distractions while you’re driving, some of which are easier to handle and others are not. Even the best driver can make a mistake once in a while, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry. If the following occur, pull over before putting yourself and others on the road in jeopardy.

You need to grab something out of your reach. Whether it’s your lipstick or phone, chances are it can wait until you get to your destination (remember, using your cell phone while driving is illegal in Illinois). You may think looking away for just a few seconds to grab something won’t be a big deal, however it will likely require you to take your eyes off the road. If it is something extremely important, pull over before picking it up.

Distractions are occurring inside the vehicle. Whether your kids are having an argument in the back or your dog had an accident, your attention is taken away from the important task at hand: reaching your destination safely. Pull over to get the situation under control before continuing on your journey. You may be in a hurry, but arriving somewhere late is better than getting into an accident.

You are having a medical emergency. All too often we hear of people suffering a stroke, heart attack or some other emergency and trying to complete the drive home before calling for help. DO NOT do this! It is not only an extreme danger to yourself but to also to everyone else sharing the road with you. Even something in your eye or a migraine can inhibit your ability to drive properly. If you cannot focus on driving because of something happening with your body, then you need to pull over.

There are danger signs. A loud sound, a strange smell or poor visibility – all cause to pull over. Any conditions different than what is normal may be a sign of a problem. If there is bad weather, pull over and wait for it to settle; if there is something wrong with your car, call for roadside assistance.

A police car is flashing its lights. Bummer. Better to pull over and take the ticket, than to get into worse trouble but not pulling over!

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

I’ve done business with Frank and his family for many years, and I always leave satisfied. They don’t make them like this anymore. So five stars in Bravo.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
