Dear Colonel Czernis:

On March 29, 2009 at approximately 4PM, my wife and I were driving north on I-95 just south of Highway 16 when the left front tire blew out. My wife was driving and managed to navigate from the far left lane to the right lane and take the St. Augustine exit ramp where she parked the car on the shoulder of the road. Needless to say, the experience left us shattered as we contemplated what might have happened. At this point, Trooper Neil P. Mariotti pulled up to see if he could be of any assistance. He had seen part of the tire on the highway. He was friendly, courteous and professional, and he offered to assist us in changing the tire, which he then proceeded to do. Words cannot describe how grateful the two old folks were for the trooper's assistance. In our view, his actions were above and beyond the call of duty. We are fortunate to have officers such as Trooper Mariotti serving in the Florida Highway Patrol.
