If you need to stop your vehicle on the shoulder of the road, or if your vehicle is broken down in or near traffic, you should use a warning signal to alert other drivers.

An Emergency Warning Triangle is a good way to provide an early alert for others drivers to be aware of what is up ahead in the roadway. Place the warning triangle at a safe distance of your vehicle near the incoming traffic to alert them to slow down; at approximately 30 to 40 yards (30‐ 40 m) behind your vehicle.
