The aptitude to go wherever you want, whenever you want is the main reason, together with console and safety. But none of these will matter the moment you found out that you have locked yourself out of your vehicle.
Naturally, we make an effort to handle the situation ourselves but often times it is confirmed to be not ideal unless if you are technically conversant to handle such situation. If you are not, most probable you will end up damaging your own car and will cost you even more money, time and irritation to get things back to normal.
It is very imperative to calm down and think definitely should you fall into this situation.
Where is the duplicate key?
Every car has its own duplicate key for the drivers. Numerous cars are driven by more than one person. You can easily call the person who has the duplicate and request for a help.

If your copy is left at home, depending on the distance, as long as your car is safe you can always go home and get the duplicated key. This may take more of your time but definitely will do no damage to your property.
Seek help nearby
This is less likely to happen but chances are you will meet someone knowledgeable or who had knowledgeable the same situation as you do and might have some helpful input to handle the situation.
