Great Infromation for all to Know *77 could save a life

'Deborah Greco-Canchola'
sent me this today -- great Information to know --
Thanks Deborah

I knew about the red
light on cars, but not the *77

It was about 1:00
p.m. In the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a
friend. An UNMARKED 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,

Lauren had actually
listened to her parents advice, and 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, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and
that he had back up already on the way.

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 t he 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 place.

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

Send this
to every woman (and person) you know; it may save a
applies to ALL 50
