Alternative use for tax disc holders
Police suggest use for tax disc holders.
August 10, 2014
Police in Worcester have suggested a use for road tax disc holders on car windscreens which could save thousands of lives every year, by including emergency contact information and a medical alert card.
As reported in the Worcester News, PC Wise said: “If a driver is involved in a collision or has a medical emergency whilst at the wheel, a first responder will have easy access to vital medical information and we can quickly contact next of kin.
“The way the disc folds in on itself means all the information is kept private until needed by emergency services personnel.”
The policing team, based in Malvern, Worcestershire, put the template for the form on their Twitter account @MalvernCops which can be printed out, cut out, filled in, folded up and placed in the holder.
