I like to think I’m a nice, considerate helpful person, but this quiz from the RAC has me thinking otherwise. Admittedly some of my answers were influenced by the fact that I would probably have my own kids in the car and don’t really have enough car knowledge or strength to help someone who has broken down, but I’m quite surprised at how hard I would find it to stop and help.
If I was walking by and someone was in trouble then of course I would help, but pulling over on a motorway to assist a stranger seems very different, even though I know I would need and want someone to help me in the same situation.
Going forward if I see someone in trouble I’m not going to think of myself, I’m going to think how I would feel if it was me or someone I love stuck on the side of the road.
