snopes.com: Calling #77 to Reach Highway Patrol

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
*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.

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 *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=2
0
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 about *77.

You may want to Send this to every woman (and man) you know; it may
save a life.

This applies to ALL 50 states!!!!

Thanks Linda!!!!

  2. I HAVE TOLD MY DAUGHTERS NEVER TO STOP FOR AN UNMARKED COP CAR BUT TO CALL 911 AND ASK FOR A MARKED CAR TO COME TO THERE AID. THERE WAS A GIRL RAPED AND KILLED A FEW YEARS AGO IN FORT COLLINS, CO BY A MAN POSING AS A COP 1 BLOCK FROM HER HOUSE!
