Emergency Flashers indicate a problem when driving. If you did not have the Emrgency Flashers on that would have helped in this type of situation. If you had a cell phone you could have also called 911 to get officer assistance, since it was a traffic jam and someone was ill. They would have sent an officer to clear a path for you to get through the traffic. When in a situation it is important to make sure medical personel are on alert and making a call from a cell phone as well as the Emergency flashers may have made it a little easier to get help.
