I Couldn’t State My Name

by ROAD iD Staff May 18, 2021

I have given my wife some peace of mind since I started wearing my Road ID.  About a month ago, we were on vacation in Florida.  I went out for a bike ride and was hit hard by a car. There I was, out and incoherent.  I couldn't state my name or give an emergency contact to the paramedics.  It made me realize, later, how important ID can be in the event of an accident.

I am very grateful that it didn’t turn out worse than it did.  I am happy to say that after a few weeks recovery and some bike repair, I am back on the roads again.

My RoadID will always be a part of my riding gear, along with my helmet, gloves, glasses and dressing routine.
