There are some things in life that you need to approach cautiously as opposed to diving right in. Replacing a flat tire is one of those things. There are a few steps you need to follow before you even think about loosening those lug nuts. It is safety that matters most.

This is why you want to first make sure that you get the car as far away from the flow of traffic as possible. This may not always be possible, at which point you will need to call for help before you try to replace the tire on your own.

If you are still on the street when you go to replace the flat tire, then this is one of those times when you should engage the use of your hazard lights. That is what they are for. Other drivers will be given a heads up that you are there, which will keep you safer in the end.
