Dennis...I am a AAA employee...I am a truck mechanic and also a roadside tech here in the Boston
area...and I am telling you, I see some dumb stuff!

There is no breakdown lane on the southeast expressway stretch of rt 93 that leads into Boston, but drivers break down anyway and are stranded in active lanes.
Some have engine problems that cause them not to be able to get off the highway, but most of the break downs are flat tires.

When I am dispatched to these calls, I find that most people think it is illegal to drive to the next exit if their tire is flat! so they are like sitting ducks in an active lane because they think they will get fined or arrested for driving slow on a flat to the nearest exit....you wouldn't believe how many drivers tell me that!
