Glad you did the smart thing, there are numerous people killed each year, while trying to do just what you tried to do. Best thing you can do is buy new tires on a regular basis, not when you need them. :tu

The tires were pretty new-it was a nail but you're absolutely right-that happened in the late 80s and since then the highway in question is the 2nd busiest one in Canada plus they repaved it and made the shoulder even narrower. It's a tragedy waiting to happen.

I was talking to a retired fireman and he came across a female driver on the same highway in the same area and she'd stopped her car in the fast lane after a flat tire.

He couldn't believe it so when he stopped to help her they had to cross the road and drive it to an exit-he said it was scarier than anything he'd faced as an active firefighter but he couldn't leave her stuck there either because clearly she'd quit thinking...
