So I am driving down my hated I-95, listening to my iPod, when all of a sudden the tape snaps (yup, still have a tape deck and use an adapter :)) and smokes starts pouring out the radio!!

I pull over, pop outta the car, and call 911 (I panicked) By the time I had hung yup with the very nice dispatcher, the smoked stopped.

Cop came by, looked at my car, looked at me, laughed, and said," I thought there was a fire!!"

Me-" there was, sorta, my radio caught fire."

He looks at my car, sniffs inside, and says, "Yeah, there was something on fire....whats THAT??" I look, he says, "Just kidding."

I get home safe, walk for cool my nerves, and was able to meet my friend for dinner later on. But my radio is now dead and I am very very nervous driving....and jolly gee, I get to have my 2 hr (round trip) commute tomorrow.

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE cars. Just give me a pack and a trail

That really sucks. If my car stereo ever blew up like that, I'd be really bummed. Check your PMs.

Hey you met the same officer who responded to an alarm I set off. Nice to know he travels away from the 84 area to I-95.
