Gov. Tom Corbett has announced PennDOT is launching two voluntary programs–the Yellow Dot and Emergency Contact Information programs– aimed at saving the lives of Pennsylvanians in emergency situations.

"Both of these programs speak for people when they can't speak for themselves, so medical concerns can be addressed and contacts can be reached as quickly as possible," Corbett said.
