Have you or would you call the police if you were following a car driving dangerously or suspected they had been drinking or even if they were on the phone?

If I reported all the crimes I see committed I could sit on my phone 24/7 and still not keep up but there are certain crimes of violence which I would and have reported without hesitation. Similarly I see dozens of drink drivers leaving the pub every week but I would report one if I believed they were drunk and a danger.

Yes maybe I'm too selective LOLOL

Well if I was driving behind it I wouldn't be able to use my mobile, I wouldn't have pen and paper for the make and number so?
If however i could remember all that and be able to park up and ring police the car would be miles away so do I or don't I?

I wouldn't hesitate as it might be my loved ones they kill when driving whilst intoxicated.

I'm no expert capn and I get a feeling you may know something I don't. lol. I believe non urgent calls to police can be made on 101 but emergency calls are 999 and a call to 999 can be legally made on a mobile phone while driving.

We have one thread in the forum discussing the death penalty for criminals and this one where it seems some are loathe to even help catch a criminal.

If everyone kept quiet and were too scared to speak out then a great many killers would walk free.

My daughter reported a neighbour who went the pub every afternoon and drove back drunk, he used to scrape the wall of his drive, fall out the car etc
He used to come back same time every day, nothing happened

They're very much like that around here. It's all guns and knives and drugs.

If we want a safe environment for ourselves, our families and loved ones then we need to be brave enough to report crime.
