  DO YOU KNOW #77? If you don't,please read this. This is a good reason why we should always read our
  e-mails that people send to us. Somebody sent me this e-mail today. I definitely didn't know about this. I am sure some of
  you here don't know or know somebody who doesn't know about this. Reading this e-mail I truly believe can help save  
  somebody life. Please read this.                                                                                                                                        

                                                                      
                                                                               
  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.

I did not know this and I think everyone should!  I have suggested this for a feature.  It needs exposure and the number is so easy to remember!  Thanks for sharing

Lanre,  Good information to pass along!  You are correct cell phones do have alot of features in them that we are unaware of.... they should update us in our billing statements.  But do we really read all those inserts?  I know I don't always. :)

I think I heard this, but I forgot.  Thanks Lanre for the reminder!

Hi Lanre, I have heard of this before but had forgotten the digits.  Thanks for the reminder.  Hope you are doing well today!

Lanre,

Thanks for this. It could certainly save a life. I once had jury duty which involved such a case. It was one of the most distressing times in my life. Thanks again. You deserve a gold star for sharing!

#77 does NOT work everywhere,  the only number that works everywhere is 911

Sindee Thomson (SacramentoGrapevine)-Sindee I didn't know. Pat Haddad just made a comment and she posted a link to www.snopes.com which was how I found out. Maybe we need to do something so that this would be included in all 50 states. Thanks for your comments. Have a great weekend.

Linda Powers (Resort Realty - Duck)-Thank you very much Linda. Please suggest this for a feature. Have a great weekend.
