Would you stop??

Today, I ran across a JK that was pulled off along the side of the road under an I-12 overpass. As I was going the opposite way, I did my very quick errand and was going to swing back by to see if he needed any assistance. By the time I got back, another car was there and so he had help. But....it got me to thinking! One day I was also parked briefly under an overpass (TJ was over heating and was letting it cool down before the last 1/4 mile to the shop). Three wranglers passed by and did not inquire if I might need some help. I am hoping that was an exception. Would you stop to inquire of a fellow Jeeper?? Just curious!

For me it depends on several factors if I stop to help anyone, Jeepers included. If there are little kids, a senior citizen, or anyone in a medical situation I stop regardless of whats on my plate. If there is another car with them, i usually dont. For all other situations, it depends on my own agenda. If I have my wife and 2 little ones with me, i usually wouldnt stop. If i had my own emergency to get to or i was late to where i needed to be, i probably wouldnt stop. If I were by myself just driving around or On my way to doing an off road thing, i would stop. If I had time, id stop. So it all depends. Be safe out there.

It's better to regret something you did do, than to regret something you didn't do.

In my job, I definitely know about the line between helping and being safe. Whether I offer or receive assistance depends on many factors but I guess I have a soft spot for my fellow Wranglers! Again, was just curious how others in the Jeep community feel. After all, we wave to each other! Enjoy your ride and always be safe!!!

I always trust my GUT! If the surrounding area is open and easily viewed then I may pull alongside and see what's up...
Helping change a tire etc I help THEM change it. No one! Is standing over and behind me as I change their tire. If they complain or argue they can't do it fine wait for a tow truck!!
Cute female or not...to many guys think that because it's a woman she's helpless and not a threat! Think with the big head boys...they have prisons full of dangerous women! Assumptions are for fools and dead men!
Couple years ago driving to TX for Xmas woman was in ditch. Handed her a shovel to start digging...she looked at me and laughed- you expect ME to shovel ? Yeah it's your car, I'll get some straps to pull you out. She said no I won't...
It was Xmas eve and we left her with her car... I help those that help themselves!
And I ALWAYS have a knife and carry my Glock!
