The state's Yellow Dot Program designed to help save lives is getting off to a great start, says Illinois Department of Transportation Spokesman Josh Kauffman.

The program puts valuable information in the hands of first responders on the scene of an accident.  Drivers put a yellow sticker on the lower left side of the back window, which indicates they have medical and other personal information in the glove compartment of their vehicle.  The program launched last November and nearly 30-thousand people have already signed up.  For more information, go to YellowDotIllinois.org.
