This is a brilliant idea for drivers on the autism spectrum in Alabama, which can hopefully be extended nationwide.

A special identification card can now be issued for drivers who have been diagnosed with autism. It costs $10. This card explains briefly but clearly how drivers with autism can be challenged with their condition. Communication is a major problem for them when dealing with police officers. The sensory overload when they get pulled over can be so crippling. The siren, the flashing lights, the loss of personal space, being touched for safety reasons…are all factors that may put them in a very stressful situation. This card will facilitate their interaction with police.

Read what the card says below.
