|Motorist Assistance Program||
The Motorist Assistance Program (MAP) is here to help stranded motorists get back underway. It is available free of charge on most Houston/Harris County area freeways. MAP is designed to not only help stranded motorists, but also to clear the freeways of minor incidents and stalls. This in turn helps all motorists by keeping them moving and saving them time and fuel.
Since 1989, over 600,000 motorists have counted on MAP to get them back on the road.
The specially marked MAP vehicles are equipped to handle minor automotive emergencies like overheating, flat tires, and jump starts.
Just dial 713-CALL-MAP, (713-225-5627) to contact a Texas Department of Transportation dispatcher for help or to report a stranded motorist. Verizon Wireless telephone users, can dial *MAP (*627) and the call is free.
Don't worry about who will assist you. MAP vehicles are staffed with experienced, uniformed deputies from the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
The Motorist Assistance Program is offered Monday through Friday, from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM, free-of-charge. (If services beyond those offered by MAP are required, motorists can contact the provider of their choice at their expense.)
It's for you!
