Coming back from my daughter’s swim meet, my tire blew out on I30. I had to drive a bit to pull over safely, and I hope the rim isn’t damaged.

Within 30 seconds of getting out to see the damage on the highway shoulder, an off duty cop, off duty deputy, and two others guys stopped to help just as I was pulling out my jack and spare. Guess a guy in a wheelchair on the road side is kinda conspicuous. A couple minutes later, a tollway assistance truck pulled up too. So all told, I had my own impromptu pit crew changing my tire. Sometimes people are really cool. Much better than waiting for AAA.
