Lawmakers Propose Voluntary Registry for Ohioans with Autism


Lawmakers are proposing a voluntary registry for Ohioans with autism and communication impairments as an informational tool to help police who might encounter them. 

House Bill 115 was prompted by recent cases in Ohio where drivers with autism were mistakenly arrested for driving under the influence after failing field sobriety tests. 

Individuals wishing to sign up for the registry would fill out a form online or at a bureau of motor vehicles office. A doctor would need to verify information on the form that would be noted on a person's driver's record or license plate.
