  1. regarding the 4/9/19 report of a road rage incident between auburn and carthage---I encountered a dangerous driver in that stretch around that time as well, but I can't be sure exactly of which day, but around same time of day 6ish pm. The driver I encountered was driving a burgundy/ deep red Jeep Liberty or Patriot. I was behind a tractor trailer going kinda slow. A long line of cars had backed up behind me, and I was first behind the rig. Finally came into a stretch of road with passing lane, clear sight no cars coming, and I looked left, blinker on, got on it to hustle on by the rig. As I was about level with midsection of the tractor trailer, accelerating....the red Liberty/Patriot came up at at least 90mph...really really fast...and went into the wrong side of the road breakdown lane to pass me on the left as I was passing the tractor trailer. It was a couple seconds of total insanity as I was sandwiched between the nut in the jeep and the tractor trailer. I got ahead of the tractor trailer with enough room to pull hard right and get back in the northbound lane. The Red Liberty/Jeep continued on the wrong side of the road at a extremely high rate of speed---they disappeared ahead very rapidly. I never got the plate and wasn;t sure what county I was in to stop and call the police---so I did not report it. Was one of the crazier experiences I've had on the road ever.

  2. Dial 911, they will put you in touch with the appropriate department to handle it.

  3. Tried calling 911 from a cell phone several times they still have to transfer you to other numbers and you may end up telling your story three times before you get any body that can handle the situation, very frustrating.

  4. I agree Fred. They also ask where you are, where it occurred etc. If you are driving thru an area @ 50-60mph you aren't that familiar with, plus the route signs and street signs are not plentiful- you may not know precisely where it occurred. Even if you have a smartphn (not everyone does) with gps tracking, bluetooth, hands free doo dads, the towers and tracking/ dropped signals makes a 911 call while driving in rural areas problematic. It is frustrating to see someone driving to endanger and get the feeling---by the time I connect with the right dispatch they'll be long gone. I try to memorize the plate, color and make if I can.
