You may have noticed their white tow trucks and service vehicles on Los Angeles County Freeways, but how do obtain service? Metro Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) is available during most commute hours in LA County and can be reached by dialing 5-1-1 and selecting "Motorist Aid" during the call. FSP services are free and include changing flat tires, jump-starts, towing disabled vehicles safely off the freeway, and even emergency gas. Take a look at the FSP webpage for additional information and hours of operation.
Remember, always pull out or traffic when possible. If you are involved in a minor collision, pull to the shoulder to look at damage or exchange information.
