That seems awfully excessive. I've broken down on the DC beltway and have driven all over Baltimore (on the beltway and in the city) and have never once felt the need for an armed guard. There are bad elements everywhere, but a break down wouldn't cause me concern outside of dealing with the rig/repair.
