Communication Disability Self-Identification for Drivers/Vehicle Passengers

Are you aware of the Communication Disability Self-Identification database for drivers/vehicle passengers in Ohio?

The database was established by House Bill 115 and its purpose is as follows:

Allows for individuals with a medically diagnosed communication disability who drive or regularly have someone with a communication disability in their vehicle to voluntarily identify themselves to law enforcement. Officers approaching a vehicle will be notified that there may be someone with a communication disability in the vehicle prior to approach in order to reduce any potential misunderstandings or communication problems.
