A New Tool to Identify Traffic Crash Victims

By  | 

Thousands of Floridians are signing up to have emergency contact numbers "tagged" to their driver’s license.

Now Florida drivers can have contact numbers of close friends and family appear when members of law enforcement pull their license information during a traffic crash.

So far more than 45,000 Florida drivers have registered for the new service.

"If I wasn't able to speak and I was in some type of accident, I would like you to tell my wife, mom or brother," said Florida motorist Nicholas Huse.

The service, offered by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, can only be signed up for on the Web.
