SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTHI)- Illinois State Police are asking for your help to keep you safe.

They ask that you keep a piece of paper with your emergency contact information on it inside your glove box.

Police say this can help them when they arrive on the scene of a crash; especially if a victim is unable to answer questions.

They say often during an accident phones, purses, and wallets are thrown from the vehicle or lost.

This means the first place they will look for your information is the glove box.

Officials say it's a simple task, but one that could help save your life.
