I think a MedicAlert bracelet would be a superior alternative as well as being easily recognized by Emergency Medical Professionals across the entire United States.
On the off chance somebody happened to leave the state of New Jersey. I think more likely EMTs in other states would be more likely to check for a MedicAlert bracelet as opposed to realizing they were working with a resident of New Jersey and then knowing that New Jersey has a new law regarding driver’s licenses and then looking for and finding the driver license and then flipping over to see if there is anything on the back of the card. Just doesn’t seem realistic.
Oh wow. I just looked it up. It actually is even crazier.
(note - NJ Statute has this listed as voluntary)
On the driver’s license or identification card document there will be a “5” imprinted under “restriction.”
This will alert the law enforcement official or emergency medical personnel that there should also be a pink “designation/restriction” card on this person that will indicate the condition.
Somehow, I just can’t see this working very well in Florida. Or Texas. Or California. (I could go on…) Heck - I don’t see this working very well in New Jersey !!!
