    Just curious if you were out and about and saw a total stranger who drove a Tundra that needed help would you stop and help out? Wether mechanical or stuck or needed a tow

    Not too sure what I would do if it was inferno orange. Probably would help anyway...

    Almost exclusively the top. I work with a lot of giraffes so can speak with authority on this issue. When they show up with their tie down low they are subject to merciless ridicule.

    This is a trick question.

    When in the hell did you last see a Toyota broke down?

    Rest my case.

    All jokes aside, it depends on the situation. People get car jacked and robbed that way.

    I think it would depend on the neighborhood. Are we out where lots of people are around, or in the hood somewhere ? Basically, yes I believe in helping out a fellow motorist. Good Karma I guess......

    if it feels safe for me and dire for them, I'll help out regardless of what they are driving. Well...maybe not an F150. Gotta draw the line somewhere.

    I'd like to think I'd stop and approach cautiously. One of the advantages of always carrying.
    But if it was an inferno, I'd definitely stop.

    Might be a moot point but I could care less if they were driving a tundra or not.
    the balance between my safety and the perceived risks and the civilian need for help are all there is. Situational awareness and being prepared

    If my wife and kids aren't with me... definitely if it's a senior citizen and most likely if she's wearing daisy dukes.

    Edit: and not the senior citizen wearing daisy dukes you sick bastards!

    Unfortunately, many set this as a scheme to rob (yes, rob) you.
    What do they do? They'll appear to be stranded and have a female on the side of the road luring in some good hearted citizen(s)
    Once contact is made, two or more males will arrive and have a weapon (now becomes robbery = taking something by threat or force) take your belongings, and more than likely your vehicle. Granted, they may determine to assault you in the process- whether you cooperate or not.

    Just beware...there are great guys like us who want to help, but some will attempt to take advantage of our kindness.

    For real? Drink a6pack and the gal that looked like a dog when you came in starts to look pretty foxy.

    What @Sean266 posted was spot on.

    I have came up to people and stopped out of courtesy and rolled down my drivers window and asked "do you need me to call someone for you?" Mind you, my pistol is already out, pointed at the person behind my drivers door, eyes on mirrors, vehicle in drive.

    Another aspect, in the event someone has slid off the road, you better check on your local laws. Here in Colorado, it is illegal to pull someone out of a ditch unless you are a tow company. I got schooled on this once by a Highway Patrolman that was nice enough not to issue me a ticket and explained why, and it was obvious after he did.

    No safety lights

    Not insured if damage is done to stranded vehicle. (I have actually ripped a hitch off a 1/2 ton truck that I was pulling out once. The frame damage was pretty bad.)

    A lot of the time on busy roads, a highway patrol officer will park up from the incident with lights on. This is for safety.

    Food for thought.

    I will only pull over on 3 conditions. I personally have to see the person pull over, OR It would have to be an obvious damage situation (like a crash or someone sliding off the road etc). And the last one is anyone on a motorcycle - because they are in far more danger than anyone else pulled off to the side of the freeway.

    Not to say I haven't pulled over otherwise, but it's pretty rare and usually in a densely populated area like downtown. I also usually have my hound who doesn't take lightly to strangers unless I tell her it's okay. She's been trained to protect really damn well, and knows what to do if I'm in trouble.

    I'm always the Good Samaritan... much to my wife's dismay... AND like stated before... I always have situational awareness, I'm always packing, and if it were my wife broken down on the side of the road and I wasn't available... it would be nice if a nice, honest guy helped her out.... yes, she's packing too...
