    If you see someone driving down the road with a little baby in the car, and they have a wheel bearing going so bad, or the lugnuts are loose or whatever, the wheel is wobbling like crazy, and they insist they can "drive 60 for now and get it fixed later, cause they know what they're doing", what would you do? Do you call a cop and get them to chase that vehicle off the road and towed? Do you ignore it and say "oh well, if that baby dies, it's on thier conscience"?

    I would most likely honk my horn,and get the driver's attention. Also pointing at the tire helps. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Call the police. While the infant in the car is unfortunate - even without the infant the vehicle poses a significant risk to the general public. With the infant in the vehicle it may qualify as child endangerment.

    I'd call the cops too. Driving a vehicle in obvious need of repair is bad enough. The minute you put the safety of a child at risk it becomes a "911" kinda thing.

    *******waiting for mj to tell me that I'm wasting the cops' time********

    That's a 50/50 choice.

    50% chance you could say something to the driver about it and he will blow up and get all pissy with you about telling him what to do and how to drive. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    50% chance would be that the driver would understand what you were saying and see that you were concerned and try to get the problem fixed. Afterall, the welfare of the child is more important than anything else. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Now if it were me in that situation, I would probably step back and call a cop instead. Too many fruit-loops in this world today and I want no part of any "road rage" crazies that we all hear or read about. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    If you have a cell phone, call the cops. Try to stop the car if possible. We're talking about the life of a child aswell as that of anyone close when that wheel bearing let's loose. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    He was just fawkin with you /forums/images/icons/wink.gif




    With me being a female /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif I would call the cops. If they look like nice people I might try to get their attention. You've got to remember that lots of people are worried about someone coming up along side of them and saying "your car is on fire" then they pull over and the "good semaritian (sp?)" pulls over with them, shoots the father, rapes the mother, kidnapps the kid. *shrug*
    I've had someone tell me that my motor just threw a rod (when it was running perfectly fine) and I said, "Oh...okay..." and then pulled over to a very public place just to get him away from me. There's a bunch of sickos out there. So, something like that I think it's better to call the cops and hope there is one patrolling the area who can come and take care of it.


    PS-good thing I know something about cars/trucks /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    PROTECT and SERVE
    why do you think those words are directed towards you, Joe Citizen?
    reminds me of an old sci fi film where the aliens had a book, and people translated the title "TO SERVE MAN".
    most assumed it was a good thing until the end when they find out it is a cookbook.

    No I meant if you'd already been in communication with the driver, and they insisted they knew what they were doing and that it would be fine, they have had experience and it isn't as bad as it looks.

    If I was alone in my vehicle, I'd block them. There is no other choice in my opinion, it's like wondering if you should take a hijackers gun away if you had the opportunity. I'd call 911 on the cell, leave the line open, and get in front of the vehicle and try to block it.

    WOW you have a death wish.
    he could have just robbed a bank and wants to get the heck outa Dodge.
    or
    just has a pound of crank under the passenger seat and REALLY doesnt wanna talk to Johnny law.

    other then that you could probably be charged with forcible confinement.
