My good deed

Today, I was on the way home with my sister and my niece and nephew. As we were getting close to home, we noticed the car in front of me swerving from side to side. First thought that goes through my head? The driver is drunk or something is seriously wrong. I called the local authorities and was on the phone with them giving them some details of the car and following it. Within minutes they had a police car dispatched which we saw speed by us and we went our way home after hanging up with the local authorities. I had to turn around to drop my sister off (we passed her street in order to follow the guy to give the police a pinpoint location) and when we did, we saw that there were two police cars that pulled the car over. I hope that if the driver was drunk at 2 in the afternoon, that the police did their job and that my phone call might have saved a life.

This just made me realize how important it is for people to do what I did today because you never know. This was my first time that I had to call the police for "aggressive driving" and I'm glad that I did. I just hope the person thinks twice before getting in their vehicle drunk next time.

The joys of doing a good deed...
