Single Lady Drivers Safety (primarily)
#1
Had this tale posted to me on a FB page and think that it should common knowledge.

"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 always told her never to pull over for an unmarked car, but rather wait until she got to a service station, etc. Lauren remembered her parents' advice, and telephoned 112.
This connected her to the police dispatcher, she told the dispatcher that there was an unmarked car behind her. 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. Soon 4 police cars surrounded her and the 'unmarked car'.
They pulled the guy from the car...the man was a convicted rapist and 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, ie. put on your hazard lights or call 112.
So now it's your turn to let your friends know about 112 (112 is an emergency number on your mobile that takes you straight to the police because 999 does not work if you have no signal).
This is good information that I did not know!

Please pass on to all your friends, especially any females"
Not all that wander are lost! They're just taking their dog for a walk!!

Very well placed. There are some dangerous people out there! Get your hands free phones plumbed in, and check before you stop for plain vehicles! The genuine ones will understand that!

A surprising number of commercial vehicles seem to be able to drive about with blue lights displayed.

And, of course, 112 does not work if you have no signal. It only works if you have a usable signal from any network, just not nescessarily the operator to which you subscribe.
