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

Leave it where it is, with the engine running

Pull up, then walk to an emergency telephone

Park it away from the carriageway

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 that’s on fire out of a tunnel. The greatest danger in a tunnel fire is smoke and suffocation.
