Everything was much easier thanks to my Road ID

by ROAD iD Staff May 21, 2021

I was recently involved in a single-vehicle, rollover car accident. When my car finally settled on its tires, I had lost consciousness due to head trauma. A woman pulled over to help me and saw my Road ID. It listed my name, birth year, my mother's number as my emergency contact, my allergies, medical conditions, andProud Mama of Ian on the bottom line. She immediately called my mother and checked the backseat for my child (who was safely strapped into his car seat without a scratch on him). She also called 911 and was able to inform the First Responders of my name and my severe allergy to Morphine.

The woman later contacted me to see how I was doing, and she told me how useful my Road ID had been. Without my Road ID, there is no guarantee that I wouldn't have been wrongfully medicated, my family wouldn't have known I had been in a serious car accident, and my 16 month old son may not have been found in the backseat until much later. I am very thankful for the help I was given, which was made much easier thanks to my Road ID.
