California is famous for many things -- some positive and some negative.

Fortunately, a joint program organized by several state organizations, the Freeway Service Patrol, provides drivers who can help disabled motorists with several services for free, including quick repairs, tire changes or towing. Despite the benefits of these services, these workers also face hazards to their own safety as evidenced by a recent work accident involving a FSP employee.
