Assembly Democrats News Release

Wisniewski Hails Establishment of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Next-of-Kin Registry

Emergency Contact Registry Established by Wisniewski Legislation Known as Sara's Law

(SAYREVILLE) - Assembly Deputy Speaker John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) Tuesday hailed the establishment of a next-of-kin registry by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC), which was created as a result of legislation he sponsored known as Sara's Law. The bill was unanimously passed in the legislature and signed into law by the Governor in April, 2011.

Sara's Law is named in memory of Sara Dubinin, a 19 year old from Sayreville who was killed in a car accident. The tragedy was compounded by the delay in notifying her family. By the time her mother Betty was told of the accident, Sara was already in a coma and she never regained consciousness.

"Designating a family member, trusted friend or loved one to be an emergency contact will help ensure that, in the event of a life-threatening situation, someone could be notified and be at the person's bedside within minutes rather than hours," explained Wisniewski. "Sara's Law offers the opportunity for all of us to avoid the ordeal her family endured and will stand as a lasting tribute to the memory of Sara Dubinin."
