Well, it happened.


She grew baby wings…………Allison got her drivers permit.    I knew this day was coming, and I’ve been shoving all of my feelings into the Land of Denial.  We’ve been thru this once before with her sister, I thought it would be easier the second time around.  I may never sleep again!


When the day comes that she grows her ‘big girl wings’ and is out driving on her own, Allstate has found a way to take one worry off my list.

The Good Hands® Roadside Assistance service from Allstate gives us access to the Allstate 24/7 Nationwide Roadside network, with no annual fee.  Allstate wants every driver to be safe on the road, Good Hands® Roadside Assistance is the first free-to-join, pay-per-use, roadside assistance service that is available to all drivers, not just Allstate customers. you can be in Good Hands® even if you’re not an Allstate policy holder. I LOVE that peace of mind.

If you’ve ever been stranded on the side with a flat tire or burned out transmission, you know how valuable roadside assistance can be.  Earlier this summer our oldest left a restaurant with a girl friend at 10:30pm to find that her car would not start, and they were 45 mins. from home.  Not having roadside assistance, she was left wondering what to do.  Of course  she had a few offers to try and jump start the car, to no avail (and who wants to think about strange men coming to offer help to their daughter in a parking lot at night!–see why I don’t sleep), the next step was looking up numbers for towing service.

All of this could have been made much easier with Allstate’s Good Hands® Roadside Assistance.
