PennDOT is shining the spotlight on a program that could save your life! It's called the "Yellow Dot Program."
Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey spotlighted the campaign Monday.
Ryan teamed up with PennDOT to explain how a small yellow sticker on the back left windshield of your car could play a big role if you're ever involved in a serious crash.
According to PennDOT, "this program (Yellow Dot) assists citizens in the 'golden hour' of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a Yellow Dot decal in your vehicle's rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need."
To receive a "Yellow Dot," you can stop into any DMV in our area or many state representatives offices carry them as well. You can also get one online by heading here.
Once you receive a "Yellow Dot," you're encouraged to place it on the back left windshield of your car.
