"A fellow biker was lucky he wore his Road ID"
My family and I are avid motorcycle riders.  I was introduced to Road ID by a fellow rider and I decided to give my family members Road IDs for Christmas.  I also handed out Road ID coupons at our regular bike meeting in January.  Recently, during a local ride, one of the riders missed a left turn and hit the curb.  He was thrown...   - Karen S. / Orlando, FL  Continue Reading

Sample Text

What should I put on my ID?

You can design your Road ID any way you want. The number of lines you have depends on the style (Wrist, Shoe, FIXX, etc) and version (Original or Interactive) that you select. Regardless, you have 24 character spaces per line. Below is what we recommend:

Primary Information
Full Name
Expand

We recommend that you put your full First and Last name on your ID. We suggest that you use your given name rather than nicknames or preferred names. Why? It is easier for emergency personnel to locate vital medical history if they have your given name. You may, however, want to add your middle name, initial, nickname, or preferred name to your ID in addition to your given name (see below).

Below are a few examples of how to enter your name:

JAMIE JOHNSON
Standard Name

JAMIE A. JOHNSON
Name with middle initial

JAMIE "JAMES" JOHNSON
Name with preferred name in quotes

JAMIE "SKIP" JOHNSON
Name with nickname in quotes

Collapse

City, State & Country
Expand

We recommend that you put your City, State, and Country on your ID. Zip Codes are not necessary. Why? Zip Codes are typically used for "mailing" purposes only. First responders and medical personnel will not need to know how to mail you a letter. Instead, we suggest that you use the extra space to list your Country. This could be a tremendous asset if you are ever involved in an accident while visiting another country.

Below are a few examples of how to enter your City, State and Country:

CINCINNATI, OH USA

SAN DIEGO, CA USA

TORONTO, ON CAN

MONTREAL, QC CANADA

Emergency Phone Numbers
Expand

Besides your name, phone numbers are the most important items on your ID! This is how first responders and medical personnel will contact your family and friends. In the event of an accident, not only will you be able to have your loved ones notified quickly, but they will be able to convey vital information to emergency workers. We recommend that you put at least 2 phone numbers on your ID. Be sure to list numbers of people that are most likely to answer the phone when you may need them to. Many people will choose to list work numbers and neighbors also. If you live alone, do NOT list your own phone number. Likewise, do NOT list your own mobile number. These numbers will not be an asset in the event of an emergency.

NOTE: Phone numbers are easiest to read when they are entered with dashes, like this:
"859-341-1102"

Below are a few examples of various ways to enter phone numbers:

859-555-1212 / 554-1212
Two phone numbers on one line using the same area code

HOME 513-555-1212
Common way to list the "home" number

PARENTS 513-555-1212
Family members are good numbers to list.

MOM 513-555-1212
Other examples: MOM, DAD, SON, BROTHER, BRO, SISTER, SIS, DAUGHTER, DGHTR, AUNT, UNCLE, G-PARENTS, etc.)

SON 513-555-1212 WORK
You can specify the type of phone number at the end of the line (WORK, CELL, HOME)

ERIC 513-555-1212
You can also specify the person's name that the number belongs to

ERIC 513-555-1212 CELL
Person's name with type of phone number

Collapse


Secondary Information
Allergies
Expand

If you have allergies to certain medications or food, we highly recommend that you indicate this on your ID. (NOTE: you do NOT need to list any "seasonal" allergies).

There are many medically accepted abbreviations for allergies. Click Here to see a list of common allergies and their medical abbreviations.

IMPORTANT: You MUST include the word "NO" or "ALLERGY" when listing an allergy. Simply listing the word "PENICILLIN" may confuse medical personnel - they would not know whether you are allergic to penicillin or if you are taking penicillin.

Below are a few examples of how to enter allergies:

PENICILLIN ALLERGY
Can also be written as "NO PCN"

NO PCN, SULFA
Using "NO" is an good substitute for "Allergic To"

NO PCN, SULFA, E-MYCIN
Abbreviate medications if you need to fit multiple allergies on one line or need room for other other information.

Collapse

Expand
NKA, Blood Type, Organ Donor, DOB

If they apply to you, these items are important to list. In the event of an accident, this type of information (especially NKA, NKDA, and NO MEDICAL HISTORY) will help medical personnel and first responders know how to treat you.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT list this information if it does not apply to the person wearing the ID. For example, do not list NKA if a person is allergic to penicillin.

NOTE: NKA is the medically accepted abbreviation for "NO KNOWN ALLERGIES." NKDA is the medically accepted abbreviation for "NO KNOWN DRUG ALLERGIES."

NOTE: Always use the longest abbreviation that will fit on your ID. For example, if you have room on your ID to list your blood type as "A POS BLOOD," do not list it as "A+."

Below are a few examples of how to enter this information:

NO KNOWN ALLERGIES
NKA

NO KNOWN DRUG ALLERGIES
NKDA

NO MEDICAL HISTORY
NO MED HISTORY or NO MED HX

ORGAN DONOR
ORG DONOR

BLOOD TYPE A POSITIVE
A POS BLOOD TYPE
A POS BLOOD
A POS
A+


BLOOD TYPE B NEGATIVE
B NEG BLOOD TYPE
B NEG BLOOD
B NEG
B-


DATE OF BIRTH 8-23-1973
DOB 1973
DOB '73
DOB 73

(Only the year is necessary)

Medical Conditions
Expand

If you have any medical conditions, we highly recommend that you indicate this on your ID. If you do NOT have any medical conditions or history, we would recommend that you indicate this by listing: "NO MEDICAL HISTORY," or "NO MED HISTORY," or "NO MED HX"

There are many types of conditions that, if you have, we recommend that you list. Click Here to see a list of common medical conditions and their medical abbreviations.

Below are a few examples of how to enter medical conditions:

DIABETIC TYPE 2
Can also be abbreviated as "DIABETIC T2"

ASTHMATIC
Can also be listed as "ASTHMA"

BYPASS, 1995
You may also want to list the date (year only) that you had a certain treatment or procedure

LOW PULSE RATE
Can also be abbreviated as "LPR". Many athletes have low resting pulse rates. List this if your pulse rate is lower than normal.

Collapse

Quotes, Slogans, Achievements
Expand

If you have some extra space on your ID, we encourage to have some fun with the extra space. Be creative, go wild. Many people will use extra space for inspirational quotes and slogans - something to keep them motivated (like "NEVER GIVE UP"). Others will list something humorous (like "IF FOUND, TREAT WITH BEER"). Others choose list a monumental achievement (like "CHICAGO MARATHON 3:22").

Below is a collection of quotes and slogans that we have collected from our customers. They are divided into two sections:

One Liners
(quotes that only take up one line on your ID)

Two Liners
(quotes that take of 2 lines on your ID)

Collapse

Insurance Provider & Number
Expand

Your Insurance Provider and Number are good items to have on your ID, but they are not 100% necessary. If you would like to include it on your ID, please do so in the following manner:

Below are a few examples of how to enter your Insurance Provider:

KAISER #1090019

BLUE CROSS #560100000

BC/BS #560100000

Collapse


Unimportant Information
Street Address & Zip Code
Expand

If you need room to list other important information on your Road ID, you can easily omit your Address - it's just not that important. Why? In the event of an accident, your Name and Emergency Phone Numbers are going to supply the first responders with the majority of the information they need. If, for some reason, the authorities need to locate your home address, they will be able to easily find it with your Name, City and State - all of which should be on your ID. If, however, you want to list your street address, please feel free to do so.

Collapse

Useless Wording
Expand

There are many words that are not important to list on your Road ID.

Below are a few examples and the reason why they are not important:

EMERGENCY or EMERG
It is not necessary to identify a Phone Number as the "EMERGENCY" number. First Responders are going to dial the phone numbers on your ID whether they are labeled "EMERGENCY" or not. Indicating this is often a waste of valuable space on your Road ID.

DRIVERS LICENSE NUMBER
Contrary to popular belief, your drivers license number does not provide much information about you. In fact, if you have an accident after the standard business hours of the local court house, it may not be possible to acquire any identifying or contact info from your DL number.
