In May 2011, I was involved in a near fatal bicycle accident. I was thrown over the handlebars, headfirst into the pavement, knocking me unconscious. The reports say that I regained consciousness and was alert, but I don't recall anything until about a week later. I was unconscious with severe internal injuries, including fractures, a collapsed lung, internal bleeding, etc.
Due to the massive internal bleeding, the doctors needed to work quickly, and my Road ID provided all the information needed to put a name to my face, contact my wife, and alert them to my allergies. If they had given me NSAIDS or Aspirin, I would have stopped breathing. My Road ID allowed my wife to be with me quickly, who provided invaluable information to the doctors, also helping save my life.
I feel the timeline and scenario of my accident is a textbook example why Road ID is a must have. Until you experience something so traumatic, statements like this seem so generic, like a catch phrase or a sales pitch, but I can vouch for Road ID's life-saving purpose, intent, and need for just about everyone. It’s not just for those participating in high risk events.
Thankfully, I made a life-saving choice with Road ID.
