Your vehicle catches fire while driving through a tunnel. It is still driveable. What should you do?

A Drive it out of the tunnel if you can do so.

If it’s possible, and you can do so without causing further danger, it may be safer to drive a vehicle which is on fire out of a tunnel. The greatest danger in a tunnel fire is smoke and suffocation.

- Turn off your engine but leave the key in.

- Call for help via an emergency phone.
