98.3 TRY Social Dilemma: Would You Call 911 If Your Neighbor’s Car Alarm Beeped At Night?


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Thursday’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came from Bridget after she had a run-in with her neighbor. Here’s her email:

Jaime. I’m a little upset about something that I think will make a good dilemma. Here’s what happened. Two nights ago, my neighbor’s car alarm went off in the middle of the night. It woke me from a sound sleep. I didn’t think much of it at first, but then my neighbor never came to turn it off. That got me nervous so after about ten minutes of it going off, I called 911. Well, the police came and checked everything out and woke up the neighbors and ultimately everything was okay. The next day I called just to make sure they were okay, and they were angry with me for calling 911. They said I should have called them first. I just thought if they didn’t hear it after ten minutes of beeping, something had to be wrong. They asked me to never do that again and things were left a little cold. I don’t think I did anything wrong, do you? Would you have called the police or would you have called them? Thanks so much Jaime

This has happened to me before and I’ve always just texted my neighbor about it. I guess if I didn’t get a response back, then I would have called 911. Bottom line though, I don’t think Bridget did anything wrong at all.

What do you think? Let’s help her out and let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
