This card has many useful purposes. For example:

  • Familiarize yourself with the card to understand how it works to help in various legal (or other) situations.
  • Print out a copy, keep it in your car, purse, or wallet for emergency use. It can be laminated, stored in the car glove box or above the visor (in a zip lock back or just folded), and of course you can replace it easily online anytime.
