Special On-the -Road-Coverage for Berkeley Reporter
This is close to a national scandal.
A tire blowout is no big deal these days, right? All you have to do is get on the cell, and summon help. If you don’t have road repair insurance, you can call 911, and pay out of pocket.
Only two things are necessary, a working phone, and a pocket.
I was insured for roadside assistance, and my phone worked well at first. As it’s battery began to decline, it wasn’t of much use.
But the phone put me through to roadside assistance, who were in Arizona, and then Texas, and finally Florida. The 20-year-old Arizonan and I discussed high school English and became great friends. He said that I had done a good job of “locating” myself, and staying cool. Many fail this test, according to the kid.
