*112 number for your cell...

My Daddy sent this email to me and I wanted to pass the message along.
Spread the word!  Stay Safe!

" 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 **  Mobility
confirmed 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"
