I'm in my early 40s and I don't change flat tires on the side of the highway. That's what I pay roadside assistance to do. It's like $5 a month through usaa

My wife called it once when she had a flat in our driveway. When I got home from work there was an 80ish year old guy trying (unsuccessfully) to get the tire off. He didn't even have a flashlight. I wound up changing it for him before he keeled over.

Southern new England won't touch a motorcycle, but northern new England will if you add the rv option. Not sure what happens if you request a tow in a different region
Actually, they just added it about a month ago, but it's an extra $30 a year on top of your Plus membership.

I find that changing my own tire is generally faster than waiting for a AAA truck.

My wife figured this out as well, and called me to duck out of work to come and change her tire.

The key is having an nicer jack in the car than the cheap scissors jack that generally comes with the vehicle, plus a 4 point lug wrench.

If one doesn't have AAA and the car breakdowns/won't start are there any "on call" to companies that we can call? This is for North Shore/Boston/Brookline.

Thanks!
to attract attention quickly you can fire a few shots into the air from a safe place on the side of the road.

There is a special whistle that is only sold in stores after Midnight. Blow it and a tow truck will arrive within an hour.

Its ts a bit of a pain though. Maybe check yellow pages or Internet search. I recommend joining AAA.

How many times have you used AAA? For me I could have my car towed to Maine for the money I saved not paying for AAA.
My previous car was towed twice from Chelmsford to Worcester, broken ball joint, broken damper pulley and once from Marlborough to Worcester.
The Chelmsford tows would have been around $200 according to the drivers, Marlborough probably about $100. We also take advantage of a lot of the AAA discounts so it ends up costing nothing.
