I HAVE NEVER HEARD ABOUT THIS BEFORE SO I HOPE IT IS TRUE VERSES SOME INTERNET BS.  IF TRUE THIS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.  Steve

 

 

Some knew about the red light on cars, but not the *112.

It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARK ED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her  never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather  to wait until they get to a gas station, etc. 

Lauren had actually listened to her  parents advice, and promptly called *112   on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that  she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told her to keep driving,  remain calm and that he had back up already on the way. 


Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes. 


I never knew about the *112 Cell Phone  Feature, but especially for a woman alone in a car,  you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe place. 


*Speaking to a service representative at ** Bell ** Mobility confirmed that *112 was a direct link to State trooper info.  So, now  it's your turn to let your friends know about  *112. 

You may want to  Send this to every 

woman (and man) you know; it  may save a life. 

This applies to ALL 50 states

112 is the emergency number in the European Union countries, so this information is only useful to Americans and Canadians if we are traveling to Europe.  The story mentions "all 50 states", but does not specify "United States".  Obviously Lauren was driving in an EU country, probably driving on the left-hand side of the road from the right-hand side of the car that measures everything in Kilometers.  After thwarting the criminal, when the policemen got off duty, I bet Lauren and the officers went to a pub where they enjoyed warm beer and French fries covered in mayonnaise.  ;-P
