You can now register emergency contacts with the DMV:
This is a great idea. Most people do not put ICE numbers in their phone, so it's not immediately clear which phone contact to call in an emergency. If the authorities are able to look up your ID and find emergency numbers already on file, however, it's much easier to know whom to contact.
The UT system lets each license holder input information for two emergency contacts. I put in my sister and my friend. The whole process took less than a minute.
