Something people living in Texas should know, especially since this service has received very little publicity. Your Texas driver's license has a phone number on the back, just above the bar code on the lower left side: 1-800-525- 5555. (It's VERY SMALL PRINT) This number can be called for emergency assistance on the highway or wherever you might have trouble while in your car. A service truck will be sent to you. This service is state operated, and paid for with your tax dollars. If you are ever stranded, just call the number on your driver's license...help is on the way. A state trooper will be sent to make sure all is well.
Share this information with family members and friends; it can help avoid unnecessary expenses and could possibly save a life. It is a good idea to key this number into your cell phone directory and it will be there when you need it.
