Number #77 --- to keep you safe!!
RE: Number #77YOU MUST KNOW #77
I knew about the red light on cars, but not the
It was about in the afternoon, and a gal was driving to
visit a friend when an UNMARKED police car pulled up
behind her and put his lights on.She had always been taught 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.
So the gal promptly called #77on 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 any, so, he told her to keep driving, remain
calm and that he had back up already on the way.
Ten minutes later four 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 #77 Cell Phone feature, but especially fora woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarkedcar. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going toa safe quiet place. You obviously need to make some signals thatyou acknowledged them; i.e. put on your hazard lights andCALL:#77.Too bad the cell phone companies don't generally give you this
little bit of wonderful information.
Snopes confirmed that #77 was a direct link to State trooper info.
in all 50 states. So, now it's your turn to let your friends know
about #77.Send this to every woman (and person) you know - it may save a life!
