Figures from AA Business Services suggest that a quarter of all breakdowns take place in inner-city areas, with 27% of incidents happening at night.
Roger Williams, head of fleets and leasing at AA Business Services, said: ‘With the increase in certain types of vehicle crime, it could potentially be much more dangerous to break down in an inner-city area, particularly alone in the dark.
‘While the risks of driving alone or breaking down in an inner city can often be exaggerated, by simply being sensible about your personal safety and that of your employees, then any danger if they should break down will be minimal.’
