(WAFF) - Tennessee Highway Patrol officers want drivers in their state to know about a new feature to state licenses.
Drivers can now add emergency contact information tied to their license number. First responders can access a database with this contact information in the event of an emergency.
Officers we spoke with said this new feature would cut down a sometimes lengthy process of locating family members.
The feature is free to anyone with a Tennessee driver's license or state ID card.
All information can be entered and managed online at the TN Driver Services website.
