Police rolling road block Sat night


Recommended Posts

Thank you to Essex Police for coming out and protecting me on a recovery on a duel carriage way called the A131 in Essex UK. The vehicle I was recovering was on the grass as we have no hard shoulder on most of our roads in the area, and if I pulled on to the grass I would sink as it has been raining a lot. Managed the situation and took the keys off he lady for her Dodge Nitro with a banging noise from the engine as she could get a lift home in another car. 

 

This little clip is 15 minutes squashed to 60 seconds! Its from the rolling road block load and to a place of safety to strap the vehicle down.  (there is music to the video)

 

Be safe as you can out there people

Thanks for sharing the mini-video Zoogie. Did you put in a urgent request for them to help you?

 

A rolling block is a great way to slow traffic to managable speeds to allow towers to work quickly with a better chance of NOT being struck. That's good to see LE working together to help towers.         R.

I was able to wait in a laybye down the road for about 45 minute for the Traffic Police to assist. They called me when they were on route and we discussed the best option.  It worked like clock work and more safe than people trying to go round the police car when they are fending off.

I think you're story is one that all towers take heed with asking for help in making their work areas safer ... even if it takes time to wait for them to arrive on-scene. Thanks Zoogie for sharing your important video and words of wisdom. A rolling road-block is better than nothing at all.        R.
