Get freeway call box help on cell phone

NORTH COUNTY — September marks National Emergency Preparedness Month and the San Diego Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies wants to let drivers know about an added convenience for roadside assistance.
While emergency call boxes are still operational and available on San Diego freeways and state routes, San Diego motorists can now protect themselves by dialing 511 from their cell phones, operated by the San Diego Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies, or SAFE, Mobile Call Box Program.
San Diego motorists driving on San Diego County freeways/highways can place a toll free call to 511 on their cell phone when in need of non-emergency roadside assistance while remaining in the safety of their vehicle. It’s like having your very own mobile call box. In addition, the SAFE 511 Mobile Call Box Program operates in conjunction with the SANDAG Advanced Traveler Information System program to provide additional services through 511, including real-time traffic conditions, driving times, bicycling information and ride-sharing in San Diego County 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
