Paramedics already had my emergency contacts on the line

by ROAD iD Staff May 13, 2021

This is my second RoadId that I've purchased over the years, the first one, if memory serves me correct, was damaged after I was hit by a vehicle on my bike in Texas a few years ago, and due to a move with the military, I have only recently had it replaced. it is an amazing product, and in my opinion, a must have for anyone, especially cyclists. The accident knocked me unconscious for a few minutes, and when I came to the paramedics already had my emergency contacts on the line. Now anytime I go on the bike, I have it on just in case things go wrong. Thank you again for making such an amazing product!I think I mentioned it in the comment, but this incident happened a few years ago. If memory serves me right, they used the Road ID to get my now ex-wife's phone number to alert her and the people we were staying with that I was in an accident and would be taken to the nearest hospital. I remember the band being torn up quite a bit, and I think it eventually got lost during our move from Texas to Hawaii. It wasn't until I saw an ad on Instagram that reminded me I used to ride with one, and felt much safer when I had my Road ID. I've ridden a few times since I got it, and even if I'm a mile down the road and realize I forgot it, I'll turn back. Thanks again for reaching out, that's one of the reasons why I love companies like Road ID. Hope all is well with you!
