Can play' what if' all night. What if it was a medical emergency? what if it was a drug deal gone bad? What if it was some drunk crazy dude that would have opened fire as you sat there in front of him with a phone in your hand?

I've had six accidents in a year, all different idiots plowing into my armored truck because they were not paying attention. I've NEVER seen so many bad drivers, and I've lived in numerous countries with lax driving laws and little to no enforcement.Regular Guy wrote:The funny part was that my sister and I never did find the seatbelts.

We have 4 priorities on my job. 1. would be a robbery, burglary IN PROGRESS, shots fired, you get the idea. A complaint of a reckless driver would probably be a priority 4, the lowest priority. Sorry, but people suffering from heart attacks, missing persons, thefts, just about everything else is more important. So I could fairly say, if that call came into my dispatcher, it would probably go on the waiting list ( CAD) and it would more than likely not be dispatched for an hour or more, depending on availability of sector cars. Unfortunately such calls may not be dispatched for several hours, due to manpower issues. Keep this in mind the next time you call the police. Your reaction was one of the heart and not the head. You probably would of done better counting to 10 and then thinking of a far off topless beach.
