Christie to Consider Signing Singer’s Life-Saving ‘Yellow Dot Program’

Legislation sponsored by Senator Bob Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to provide emergency responders with vital health information about injured motorists was passed today by the full Assembly.

The legislation, S-71, would provide interested motorists a yellow sticker to place on their vehicles to notify emergency responders that critical health information is available in the glove compartment.

“In case drivers cannot communicate during an emergency, this measure gives our responders critical health information and a better chance of reviving our motorists in life-threatening circumstances,” Singer said. “Yellow Dot programs are effective, simple initiatives in several states, including Connecticut, New York, Virginia. This is worth our every effort, as you can’t put a price on saving lives.”
