In case you didn't know, you can now add an Emergency Contact to your Alabama Driver's License! This is beneficial to all drivers, and especially to concerned parents of young drivers or children of elderly ones.

Having an easily accessible emergency contact gives first responders someone to call in the event of a crash, overdose, medical emergency, disoriented elderly driver, or anytime when the license holder may not be able to share their information (most cell phones today are password protected, so calling "Mom" from the injured person's phone isn't as easy as it once was).

This license update is free and only takes seconds to complete. Go to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency website at www.alea.gov and search Emergency Contact. You must have the name and license number of the holder, and you will enter/edit the emergency contact name/address/phone number. It will automatically attach to the licensee's records.

Although you will not be given a new physical license, the information will show to dispatch and the first responder's computer searches. Feel free to share this information with your family, colleagues, and friends!

The UAB TRIP LAB's teen driving education program is now virtual! The program uses a high-fidelity, fully immersive, state-of-the-art Driving Simulator and a video series on YouTube to teach young drivers the dangers of distracted driving. "As scientists, it is our responsibility to disseminate our findings to the broader community," says Dr. Despina Stavrinos, associate professor of psychology and UAB TRIP Lab director. "In collaboration with community partners, the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham, we have served our community by creating a teen distracted driving program that has been delivered to over 13,000 students in the Greater Birmingham area. Now, offered in a virtual format, we are expanding our efforts across the Southeast, where motor vehicle crashes disproportionately affect teens."
