worth a read

This was sent to me by email it is true so thought i would share it with you. I am not normally this serious.But this is.

This passage is worth reading and passing on if you have the time.

A bit of useful advice - it is true, someone has asked the Dorset Police
&It's been confirmed that this number (see below) works in the UK. This
actually happened to someone's daughter. Lauren was 19 yrs old and in

This story took place over Christmas/New Year's holiday break. It was
the Saturday before New Year and it was about 1.00 o'clock in the
afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend, when an UNMARKED
police car pulled up behind her and put its lights on. Lauren's parents
have 4 children (of various ages) and have always told them never to
pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather, wait
until they get to a service station, etc. So Lauren remembered her
parents' advice, and telephoned 112(or 999) from her mobile phone. This
connected her to the police dispatcher. She told the dispatcher that
there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his
rooftop behind her and that she would not pull over right away but wait
until she was in a service station or busy area ...

The dispatcher checked to see if there was a police car where she was
and there wasn't and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that
he had back-up already on the way. Ten minutes later 4 police 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 and was wanted for other crimes.

I never knew that bit of advice, but especially for a woman alone in a
car, you do not have to pull over for an UNMARKED car. Apparently police
have to respect your right to keep going to a "safe" place. You
obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them (i.e., put
on your hazard lights) or call 112 like Lauren did.

Too bad the cell phone companies don't give you this little bit of
wonderful information. So now it's your turn to let your friends know
about 112.

Please pass on to all your friends, especially any females.
