The green angels are mechanics who patrol the Mexican toll roads in green trucks to offer free assistance in case of a breakdown (labor and towing are free, but to replace a part would be at the car owner’s expense). In addition, they are equipped to give tourist information as they are connected to government offices via a network. Although their services are free, tips are appreciated. Take notice of the emergency signs along the road with phone numbers. If your vehicle breaks down, pull over to the side of the road and lift the hood to signal them. Call one of those numbers depending upon which toll road you are on and the green angels are on their way to help.
