YOU MUST KNOW #77
I knew about the red light on cars,but not the #77. It was about 1:00 PM 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 has always been taught to 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 young lady promptly called #77 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, 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 carbehind 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 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 quiet place. You obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them, i..e.. put on your hazard lights & call #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.
