There’s a push in Albany to make driving safer for people on the autism spectrum. A downstate assemblyman wants to let people with Autism Spectrum Disorder put a small symbol on their driver’s licenses.
The idea is that the small puzzle piece on a license would let law enforcement know they are interacting with someone on the spectrum.
Liz Pritchard was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at 15 years old.
She will never forget the only time she was pulled over. Pritchard struggled to communicate and took more time to process questions.
