A 911 call last week from a woman who was running late for her train has prompted Peel Regional Police to remind people of what is and what is not an emergency.
She was in a cab on the way to Union Station and it wasn’t going to get her there on time for her train so she was wondering if 911 offered “emergency ride services.”
Listen to the whole call here:
Being late for a trip is never ideal.
Calling 9-1-1 to ask the police to act as an "emergency" ride service, to get you there on time?
Yeah…not gonna happen.
