Now motorists no longer have to display tax discs on their windscreen, Nottinghamshire Police have come up with an ingenious way to use them to save lives.

The Emergency Contact Disc contains next of kin contact details and medical alert information for the driver. In the event of a medical emergency or road traffic collision that renders the occupants unable to communicate, a first responder will be able to obtain vital information that is not otherwise accessible at the scene.

The disc can be cut out and placed into the now otherwise redundant tax disc holder, the information sections fold inwards so it would not be viewed by passers by.

A police spokesman said “Access to health and next of kin could be critical at the scene of a collision or medical emergency. “This is easy to print out and fill in People can add additional information or details about regular passengers.”
