Many NC drivers have a little red heart on their drivers license indicating that they would like to be organ donors if they die, however, many do not realize that it is not legally binding. It is still up to the victim's family to make the final decision.

On October 1st, a new law will take effect that makes the driver's decision (indicated by the red heart) legally binding. About 3.3 million or 45 percent of N.C. drivers have a red heart on their licenses.

That's great news. I'm sure that'll increase significantly the number of organ available!
