What about calling 9-1-1 from my cellular phone?
The California Highway Patrol is encouraging citizens with cellular phones to report drunk or reckless drivers, accidents, or other emergencies by dialing 9-1-1. You will be connected directly to CHP dispatch, and the call will be rerouted to the proper jurisdiction if necessary. The types of calls that CHP consider "emergencies" include: drunk or reckless driving, traffic accidents or other road hazards, medical emergencies, fires, crimes-in-progress, and stranded drivers in need of assistance.
