It's absolutely worth the phone call in the moment. Although it was under

totally different circumstances, a phone call in my case helped nab a drunk/under-the-influence/something-not-right driver. I was on my way home from a night football game in 'Hooville a good 8 or 9 years ago, and when I got onto the 168 bypass off of I-64, I was the only one heading south, except for a small pickup truck. It happened to be doing roughly 25 miles an hour. And the driver seemed to be having quite a bit of trouble staying in the right lane - lots of weaving about. This was at ~1:30 or so in the morning. So, I popped in behind him/her, got the plate, then called 911. They asked me to keep my distance (which is darn hard doing 25 in a 55 zone), and to stick with him/her until they could get an officer there.

After we went over the big bridge (the one that goes over the intracoastal waterway), at the bottom end, he started speeding up, perhaps because he finally realized he was being followed. No matter; at the bottom of the bridge, one of Chesapeake's finest was waiting for them, pulled out, and nabbed them at the next exit.

It's always worth the call - you never know when your call might lead to somebody getting what they deserve.
