What resources does your area provide for those sorts of circumstances?
Answer to all of the above: I have an emergency fund to purchase a car. Hopefully friends and relatives can help out if I can't drive. There are door-to-door public transit options in my city as well for just this reason. This is a real concern for anyone who depends on their two feet. Hell, I can't even get into my house in a wheelchair.
