Motorists in the Welshpool area are being urged to sign up to a scheme that could help emergency services find possible life-saving information about a driver in an accident.

Powys County Council’s Yellow Triangle scheme gives drivers the opportunity to display a means of quickly determining the driver’s details in the event of the collision.

The scheme has two elements, a ‘Your Details’ card and a yellow triangle sticker.

The card, to be kept in the glove compartment, will give information about the driver’s next of kin, medical conditions, allergies and medications.

The yellow triangle will be displayed in the bottom left hand corner inside the windscreen, out of the driver’s field of view, to inform the emergency services that the information is in the glove compartment.

Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “This latest initiative will provide emergency services with vital information if a driver is involved in a collision. I urge all Powys drivers to take advantage of this worthwhile scheme.”

To request a ‘Yellow Triangle’ scheme pack, email road.safety@powys.gov.uk.
