Utah’s Invisible Condition Identification Symbol for Drivers 

The Driver’s License Division for the State of Utah has introduced a new way for authorities to accommodate drivers with certain medical conditions. 

The Invisible Condition Identification Symbol is a free process that allows drivers to register their “invisible condition” into police records. If you’re ever in a traffic stop, then the police officer will see the symbol on your license and will make the proper decision in correlation with your condition. 

Officer William Dehart from the St. George Police Department explained the benefits of the symbol on the SGPD Facebook page.
