ALDOT offering free program for drivers with car problems
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Department of Transportation wants to make it easier for drivers with car problems to get help.
On Thursday, it's launching its new ASAP program in the river region. ASAP stands for Alabama Service and Assistance Patrol. This free service will send out a truck to help with crashes, disabled vehicles, or any other obstruction that slows traffic flow.
ALDOT officials say the goal is to minimize interstate traffic congestion and assist motorists with getting to a safe location off the roadside.
ASAP will operate weekdays from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Interstate 65 from exit 164 to exit 186. and Interstate 85 from the I-65 interchange to exit 22.
Motorists who need assistance are asked to call 334-832-1784 for services.
