800-525-5555

A few days ago, one of my well-meaning acquaintances emailed this. I left the grammatical furballs intact, so's all-a-ya'll can see just how illiterit Texans kin be:
Your Texas Driver's License

This was news to me.; And trust me, I got my license out and looked.
It's really there; Something all Texans should know, especially since
this has received very little publicity. Your Texas driver's license has a phone number on the back, just above the bar code on the lower left side:; 1-800-525-5555. (It's VERY SMALL PRINT but it IS there.) This number can be called for emergency assistance on the highway or wherever you might have trouble while in your car. A service truck will be sent to you. This service is state operated, paid for with your tax dollars. If you are ever stranded, just call the number on your driver's
license...help is on the way. A state trooper will be sent to make sure all is well.
Being the Suspicious Old Fart that I am, I checked the phone number and found that it's used in AT LEAST ELEVEN states [Texas; Virginia; Ohio; New
Hampshire; Nebraska; Montana; Missouri; Maryland; Iowa; Florida;
Arizona] to direct you to Roadside Assistance (one way or another) ... I guess they figured [911] wasn't good enough. That said, there are pockets of the USA where [911] doesn't work, so maybe this is a good idea, after all. To that end, I programmed it into my cellphone, just in case.
