Do I have the right?

To keep driving and call 911 for a dispatcher if I'm being pulled over on a dark country road that rarely has traffic?

Yes. I've read articles that encourage women to do this if they feel unsafe.

Slow down, call 911 and turn your hazard lights on, until you get confirmation.

You can call 911 and explain that there are flashers behind you and you want to make sure it is a cop and not an impersonator.

Yes you do. As long as you are attempting to contact the police to inform them of what you are doing and what your concerns are, you can continue to drive at a reasonable speed even if you are being pulled over.

I would be scared to pull over on a desolate road alone in the country.

Last night an unmarked car came up on me from over 4 miles away. I was really scared so I kept driving and started to dial 911 and then he went around me so I assumed he was looking for a house. A few miles down the highway I see the same car parked on the side of the road as I drove by. He pulled out and followed me again for less than a mile than turned around without turning on his lights.
I wonder if I have the right to keep driving and call dispatch

For unmarked vehicles it is encouraged that if you do not feel safe that you call 911 if they are attempting to pull you over. You also might want to start taking mental notes on the uniforms that the deputies wear and what their badges look like. Our county has a six star badge whereas our State Troopers and our city police have shields.

Of course you do and it's usually encouraged.
