"As the originator of the programme and the person responsible for
obtaining and distribution of these gifts, I can say, the 'call police'
sign, together with a couple of flares, with training on how to use
them, have been among the best received gifts by our employees. During
the distribution of this particular gift there was nothing but praise
for the company on gifts such as this."
~ J. Steer, Health, Safety and Environmental
Coordinator, Ingersoll-Dresser Pump Canada Inc.
"As the person who coordinated the program at our company, I must
let you know that the response we received to the program was excellent
and entirely positive. The employees were extremely pleased to receive
the Highway Help sign packages. The support your organization provided,
helped make this program a safety and employee relations success with
both our salary and wage employees."

"Without this police initiative, we very much doubt that such a
significant number of our students would have benefited from what we
consider to be one of the most effective crime prevention programs in
support of personal safety of members of the general public that we have
encountered. Judging from the positive feedback we've been receiving, a
significant contribution has been made to the safety of our students
both on and off campus. We have also benefited from the goodwill
generated by the initiative, which has encouraged students to work with
the Department to enhance their own safety and that of the University

"..I blew a tire. I panicked...Here I am stranded (every female's
nightmare) traveling by myself, unable to change a tire, its freezing
cold, I don't have a car phone, and who in today's world would stop on
the 401 to help someone? I thought of my Highway Help Sign and by
following the directions attached it to my car window. To my amazement
within ten minutes an O.P.P. officer stopped to make sure I was okay and
everything was under control. Within only half an hour helped arrived
and I was on my way to get my son! All I can say is that your Highway
Help Program is worth its weight in gold. Everyone only needs to picture
themselves stranded once to agree with me."
~ Elizabeth Uhrig
water pump on my car suddenly quit functioning and therefore caused the
engine to overheat...I decided the only way in which I was going to
obtain assistance was to display my Highway Help Sign. To my amazement,
within five minutes of displaying my Highway Help Sign, an Ontario
Provincial Police officer ascended on our location followed by an area
tow operator. The happy ending to this story was that my car was
repaired and we were able to conclude our journey. I am still amazed at
the speed at which assistance arrived. I can assure you that my Highway
Help Sign is worth more than its weight in gold and I shall never travel
without this sign."

"I passed a young girl in a fairly new car with the "POLICE" sign
out. I immediately called *677 on my phone...As I began to give the
location , the woman said, "Not to worry, we've had many calls about the
young lady. A car has been dispatched and should arrive any minute." I
had never heard a more comforting response in my life...That could have
been me easily. It made me think what if my phone was dead and a
thousand other "What If's." I was amazed at the response that little
piece of plastic brought. It felt good to know that people do care. I
made sure that vital sign was added to my safety precautions and I would
recommend it to any drivers I know."
~ Dawn Johnston
"As a female driver who often travels alone, I have often been
concerned with my own safety and have wondered what would be the most
secure way to handle a highway mishap... I was given one of these signs
and was impressed with the idea that it would allow me to remain within
the safety of my own car, while still being able to signal for help. I
believe this new sign will prove to be very effective and am especially
appreciative of those who have and continue to develop new ideas to
ensure highway safety for all drivers."
~ Angela Brouwer
"I have already put one of your great signs in each of our
family's 3 vehicles and given several away...Thanks so much for the
wonderful program. I too travel alone often and feel safer with this
sign than with any of my previous paper window signs."
~ Carol Lee Hubert
"We purchased one of your new 'Highway Help Signs' and as it
turned out it was indeed a blessing... We hit a patch of black ice and
we had a flat tire. We followed your instructions and we put the sign on
the window and shortly after a pick-up driver stopped, he telephoned the
AAA and we received help, all of this in a very short time. Then again
in the Carolina's we were forced off the road into a gully by a 16
wheeler. We once again hung our sign, this time on my husband's arm, and
a rescue truck stopped and phoned a tow truck and stayed with us until
it came... we are grateful for your wonderful program, we are in Texas
now and have had many questions about our sign."

"...I ran out of gas. I was stranded on the highway shoulder, with
my two little boys just east of Ganaoque with no cellular phone, and no
gas can... I had a Highway Help Sign given to me from my automobile
dealership Bill Nurse Chevrolet in Whitby. I put it on my drivers side
window as instructed. After a while, a family did stop to give me aid...
they said that they would get some gas and bring it back to me. A few
moments later, an Ontario Provincial Police vehicle approached me. The
officer said that the 911 operators had received 4 phone calls from
people driving by me in the last fifteen minutes, I couldn't believe it.
The Police Officer said he would return in twenty minutes to see if the
family who went for gas did indeed return... after a short time the
Constable returned with a can of gas for me that he was given from the
family, and to not put them out to much he said he would bring me the
gas. I put the gas in my vehicle, thanked the officer and went on my
way. I got to see how many kind people there are who are willing to help
when you need it and I also got the chance to prove how effective my
Highway Help Sign is. I know that without it I could never have
attracted the attention necessary to get the help I needed."
