Always wanting to get source information, I asked a friend of mine who is a 
Commander in the California Highway Patrol about this idea.  Here's his 

"We're not against the idea, but most folks don't have their own name in 
their phone, so it might be something that is hard for us to use 
anyway.  We do have a computerized system to locate people involved in 
accidents where they are transported to hospitals and can track arrestees 
as well.  A laminated card next to the driver's license can be useful, but 
an "in case of emergency" note or sticker on the back of the license might 
be would be cheap (home computers) and easy to replace if things 
changed.....we always look for the license.."

Pretty practical advice, eh?

Stay cool!
