For years, my family members and myself would usually pull over when we'd see another motorist in need of help. After the way things have changed here, I am less likely to try and help someone unless I feel it's safe.
Several years back, I was on my way to pick up some tractor parts and took what I'd call the scenic route. During the trip to the dealership, I noticed a pickup truck sitting on the shoulder. It was a typical hot and humid day (normal for Texas during spring & summer) and the driver of the truck had the windows rolled down. At first, I was tempted to turn around and go back to help, but decided that if that truck was still there on the return trip, I'd go ahead and see if I could help.
On the return trip home that same truck and driver were still sitting there, so I went ahead and pulled up behind and turned on my truck's hazard lights. I do recall saying some prayers before getting out. As I approached the truck on foot, the driver got out and thanked me for stopping. I asked what the problem was and he replied that he had a flat tire and was attempting to put on the spare when the jack sunk into the asphalt. Went and got my jack and in less than five minutes had the older gentleman back on the road. He was sweating as hard as I do. Said that no one else had stopped to offer help and that he'd been sitting there for about 3 hours. He didn't own a cell phone and was on his way to the nursing home to visit his mom.
These days, at least in my area, you are risking your life when you pull over to help others. You are risking being run over by another motorist or the possibility of being held up at gun point. Wish the latter wasn't part of the equation, but it just is. Helping other people is what I like to do, but sometimes it's safer to just call for help for them if they are unable to.
