TFW Your Stranded? Urgent.ly Keeps it at Bay this Spring Break

Sometimes when you hit the road, the road hits back. But when a breakdown interferes with break time, every second counts.

Sometimes when you hit the road, the road hits back. But when a breakdown interferes with break time, every second counts.

Imagine you’re on the road with your best friend riding shotgun to the spring break destination of your dreams and – Doh! – you run out of gas… in the middle of nowhere.

If you’ve got Urgent.ly on board it’s not a problem: with just a few taps on your smartphone a nearby tow truck is immediately en route – and just like Uber, you can watch help arrive right on your phone’s map.

So whether you’re heading to the white sandy beaches of Florida or the freshly powdered mountains of Colorado, don’t head out on your adventure without first downloading Urgent.ly. It’s free, and with a nationwide network of rescue vehicles and flat-rate, pay-per-use pricing, it’s an altogether better (and far cheaper) way to get roadside help than anything that’s come before it.

Oh and one more thing: Urgently is offering a lifetime 15% discount on service to anyone who downloads the app and enters promo code “SB15” during registration.

So what are you waiting for? Get it here now!

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
