A friend of mine, who was driving home after a fishing trip in northern Michigan with his boat in tow, had engine trouble a few miles inland from Lake Huron and had to pull over on the side of the road.
The battery on his mobile phone had died, so he decided to use his marine radio to get help.
Climbing into his boat, he broadcast his call letters and asked for assistance.
A Coast Guard officer responded, “Please give your location”.
“I’m on Interstate-75, two miles south of Standish”.
The officer paused, “Could you repeat that sir?”
“I-75, two miles south of Standish”.
There was a longer pause, then a puzzled voice asked, “Just how fast were you going when you hit shore?”
