112 on cellphone

This may be an Urban Legend, but I wanted to pass it along in case it is true...

Have a Wonderful Day!!




 


 

 

 

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 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, 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  Mobilityconfirmed 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
