Did you know that there are 69 million vehicle breakdowns in the U.S. every year?

That comes out to one in three drivers, so it’s not a surprise if you’ve found yourself dealing with a car breakdown. Or that you’ve seen a car broken down on the side of the road. What would you do in either situation?

That’s what we wanted to find out. We took a unique approach by surveying Americans on what they would do in the case of a car breakdown as a bystander or the driver. Needless to say, the results were unexpected.

Key takeaways:

56% of Americans would stop for someone having car trouble.
Only 3% of drivers would flag down a stranger for help if they had a flat tire.
34% of Americans would use roadside assistance if they had a flat tire or if they were locked out of their car.
66% of men would fix their own flat tire, while 38% of women would do the same.
